This group is for those interested in international relations, human rights and conflict resolution. The plan is to conduct meetings and discussions about current topics and to introduce new people to the work of Conflict Solutions International (CSI). Who says Washington is not a place for adventure? Come for a social discussion and maybe leave with a secret mission!

CSI is a small, all-volunteer NGO. Central to its mission is not only a role of fact-finder but also of spokesperson for those peoples and movements whom traditional media has left behind. In that sense, CSI shares certain goals with investigative reporters and news organizations. However, it differs from them in significant ways because it can also offer negotiation and other expertise and thus use the information towards the goal of conflict resolution. We run events, shoot film, have a channel on Youtube and engage in interesting research.
