International Crisis Group

Conflict Prevention

The Giustra Foundation has been a long-time supporter of the International Crisis Group, a widely recognized independent, non-partisan source of analysis and advice for policymakers on the prevention and resolution of deadly conflict.

Crisis Group’s credibility is built on field-based research. Analysts in, or near, many of the world’s troubled areas find out what is happening and why. They anticipate the possible outbreak, escalation, or recurrence of conflict. They learn which people wield the most power and what – or who – influences them. They consider the actual and potential role for other countries and intergovernmental bodies like the United Nations, European Union, and African Union.

Since 2005, Mr. Giustra has been an active Board Trustee for the International Crisis Group. In 2016, the Giustra Foundation contributed $1 million to the International Crisis Group to establish the Giustra Fellowship for Conflict Prevention. The Giustra Fellows receive training and mentorship in Crisis Group’s rigorous methodology of research and analysis aimed at preventing and resolving deadly conflict.
