    -Louise Fréchette, Deputy Secretary General, United Nations, 4 October 2001
  • “These ICG reports serve as a very important early warning tool, and we use them in HCR in our constant action to prevent crises, at the same time the reports also put forward creative ideas for possible solutions that we factor into our own planning.  From among the countless papers and documents that pass through my desk, I make sure never to miss ICG reports.”
    -Søren Jessen-Petersen, Assistant High Commissioner for Refugees, United Nations, 30 August 2001

  • “I commend the ICG for the consistently useful reports it produces on conflict situations.  One particular advantage of the ICG’s work is that the insights and analysis in your report reflect the fact that so many of you at the ICG bring long and varied experience at senior levels within and outside national governments to the new calling you have undertaken.”
