Asia program

Central Asia

From offices in Osh in Kyrgyzstan and Dushanbe in Tajikistan, ICG covers the five Central Asian states - Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan - focusing on the region’s main security challenges: border and resource disputes, drugs, corruption and economic problems, extremism and heavy-handed repression of opponents.


ICG’s Jakarta-based team reports and recommends policy on the country’s political developments, the development of regional autonomy, separatist struggles in Aceh and Irian Jaya, communal violence and the role of radical Islam with a particular focus on Jemaah Islamiyah.


ICG work in Myanmar has focused on the military government, the opposition, ethnic minorities and the role of the international community in encouraging a transition to democracy.

North Korea

Time is slipping away for a peaceful resolution of the nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula. Effective diplomacy, vigorously pursued and delayed no longer, is the only way of peacefully resolving the contemporary world’s most serious security dilemma. ICG reports on a phased negotiation strategy for dealing with North Korea.

South Asia

ICG addresses security and stability issues and political transition in Afghanistan from its office in Kabul, prospects for stability in Pakistan from its regional office in Islamabad as well as the situation in Kashmir and factors that foster extremism across the region. From its office in Kathmandu, ICG has been analysing the conflict in Nepal between the Maoists and the Royal government. 

Taiwan Strait

ICG has produced a series of studies on emerging influences on the prospects for renewed confrontation in the Taiwan Strait. There have been important signs of detente, but no resolution of the underlying disagreement between China and Taiwan. Regular reports of improvements in military readiness in the Taiwan Strait have provided some cause for concern, but there are powerful constraints on any resort to lethal force. The has paid considerable attention to the domestic political and institutional influences shaping the positions of the key actors.
