CrisisWatch is a 12 page monthly bulletin, designed to provide busy readers in the policy community, media, business and interested general public with a succinct regular update on the state of play in all the most significant situations of conflict or potential conflict around the world – those that dominate the international news media, and a great many that don't.
Published at the beginning of each calendar month, CrisisWatch:
summarises briefly developments during the previous month in some 60 situations of current or potential conflict, listed alphabetically by region, providing references and links to more detailed information sources;
assesses whether the overall situation in each case has, during the previous month, significantly deteriorated, significantly improved, or on balance remained more or less unchanged;
alerts readers to situations where, in the coming month, there is a particular risk of new or significantly escalated conflict, or a particular conflict resolution opportunity (noting that in some instances there may in fact be both); and
CrisisWatch is compiled by ICG's Brussels Research Unit, drawing on multiple sources including the resources of our more than 90 staff members across five continents, who already report on some 40 of the situations listed here.
It is available online at http://www.crisisweb.org/ and by email subscription at http://www.crisisweb.org/sys/updatesp.cfm.
