Regular podcasts from the International Crisis Group, featuring insight and analysis of conflict situations around the world. We interview our field analysts and senior staff and produce short podcasts that make great inserts into news, current affairs or international programs. The podcasts are of particular interest in the DC area, to anyone who wants to understand Iraq and Afghanistan, and areas with large immigrant populations. All the audio is free of charge, and not for re-sale.

The International Crisis Group is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation committed to preventing and resolving deadly conflict
