Last year was one of rapid and sustained expansion for ICG. About the only thing that did not change was our core mission: conflict prevention and containment, pursued through field-based analysis, policy prescription and high-level advocacy. If policymaker reaction is a guide, our visibility and effectiveness as a highly credible source of analysis and policy advice also grew significantly.
Among the highlights of 2000:
- ICG became established on three continents (adding Asia), and in 18 countries (up 6 from 1999)
- Core staff rose from 25 to 55, new advocacy offices were opened in New York and Paris, and our Brussels and Washington offices were upgraded
- Media exposure increased significantly as a result of greater advocacy focus
- ICG's available funds increased from around $3 million to more than $6 million, with particularly strong growth in individual and foundation contributions
- ICG's website received over seven million hits and more than half a million visits, an average of 1300 active users daily.
Plans for 2001:
- Significant additional resources will be channelled into advocacy, with ICG's high-profile Board increasingly involved
- Policy prescriptions will be subject to broad review, with more outside input, to ensure that they are sharp, relevant and well-timed
- New Africa projects will be started, particularly Sierra Leone and East Africa
- Our program in Asia will be consolidated, especially in Indonesia, which is of significantly growing concern
- ICG will remain active in the Balkans since many issues with conflict potential remain unresolved
- We will be considering initiating a new program in Latin America, and doing further work on some key thematic issues.
