USIP's Priority Countries and Regions
With over 100 active conflicts around the world, USIP must use its financial and staff resources wisely. Each year, USIP's staff and Board of Directors determine in which countries the Institute's work can have the greatest impact. We identify conflicts where our expertise can help, and gauge whether our work would fill a need not being addressed by others. This year, USIP is working on 20 countries and areas of the world, - to prevent conflict in six, resolve conflict in nine and promote reconciliation and stability in another six.
