Feedback on ICG
January 2001 – September 2003

  • “Together in a remarkably short time, you have made the International Crisis Group a global voice of conscience, and a genuine force for peace. Your mediation work – and your leadership in early warning and conflict prevention – have been enormously important. So has your intellectual contribution to finding new approaches to long-standing conflicts. Your well researched and carefully argued reports have greatly helped us in understanding the origins and complexities of the conflict in which we become involved – often at short notice."
    -Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General, 5 October 2002

Their analysis of the Kurdish situation and the post-war political challenges provide a very important focus for our advocacy.”
    -Charlie McCormack, Head of Save the Children USA, 5 April 2003

  •  “An excellent roadmap for the international community is provided in the excellent 21 February report of the International Crisis Group, entitled A Framework for Responsible Aid to Burundi. I can not improve on the ICG’s general recommendations.”
    -Statement of Howard Wolpe, Consulting Director The Africa Project, The Woodrow Wilson International Center, Congressional Testimony by Federal Document Clearing House, 3 April 2003

  • “I welcome ICG’s initiative. Promoting a clearer idea of what, in some detail, a settlement would look like is an important way of addressing the fears of Israelis, Palestinians and others about what they would have to give up, what they would get in return, and what assurances they would have that the agreement would be respected. I hope that ICG publishing their ideas will help encourage the Israelis and Palestinian publics to focus on the potential for a solution and press their leaders to work towards it. Only an NGO could have done this.”

I assigned your articles in the course I teach on terrorism at Kennedy School; and your website is on my syllabus for a course I’m co teaching at KSG and the Divinity School on religion and conflict this spring. I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful work.  It helps me in my research on terrorism and also in my teaching.”
