  • About

    Crisis Action works with individuals and global civil society to protect civilians from armed conflict and prevent mass atrocities. Using our unique convening model, we build bridges and bring together powerful coalitions from a global network of civil society organisations that work at the highest levels of policymaking and power to advocate for the protection of some of the most vulnerable people in the world, negotiate ceasefires, secure access to live-saving humanitarian aid, halt arms flows, bring war criminals to justice and ultimately save the lives of millions of people living under the shadow of war.

    Our vision is a world where no one, no matter where they live, should fear losing their homes, their livelihoods, their loved ones or their lives to war.

    In recognition of its uniquely effective approach, Crisis Action received the 2012 MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions (MACEI) and 2013 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship.

    With 40 staff across 8 offices worldwide, Crisis Action has a global footprint whilst remaining small and nimble with a reach and impact that far outweighs its size.

    “Their pioneering collective impact model is ground-breaking. Crisis Action builds bridges and brings together a global network of civil society […] to protect some of the most vulnerable people in the world. […] That a team of Crisis Action’s small size can accomplish so much for so many vulnerable civilians in conflicts is nothing short of extraordinary.”  Jan Egeland, Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council, former UN Emergency Relief Coordinator and former Crisis Action Board Chair.
