Purposes

Co-founder, George Soros commented that "“My support of the ICG is part of a larger strategy. I believe in crisis prevention and crisis resolution. I have developed what I call the Soros doctrine — preventive action of a constructive nature which I juxtapose to the Bush doctrine of preemptive action of a military nature . . . I am the member of a well-balanced board which has such people on it as Richard Perle and Richard Allen."[1]

Funding

At the beginning of the ICG, funding was mainly from co-founder George Soros. ICG has an Advisory Council, which includes corporations like Chevron and Shell, as well as one member who is listed on its website as "Anonymous". Crisis Group has been criticised for serving the interests of its corporate and government funders.

Awards

The ICG's "In Pursuit of Peace Award" was established in 2005, and is associated with a gala event in New York City. Recipients include cabal leader George H. W. Bush and members Bill Clinton & Hillary Rodham Clinton as well as Nobel Peace Prize laureates Martti Ahtisaari and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and financier (and ICG co-founder) George Soros.
