Crisis Management Initiative (CMI)

An independent Finnish peace broker that has brought conflict parties around the same table for the last 15 years.

Crisis Management Initiative ry[1] (CMI) is an independent Finnish non-governmental organisation that works to prevent and resolve conflict through informal dialogue and mediation. Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former President of Finland Martti Ahtisaari founded CMI in 2000. Since then, CMI has grown to become one of the leaders of its field. CMI has offices in Helsinki and Brussels, a presence in selected countries and is represented in the United States by the American friends of CMI.

A strong focus on women’s participation and gender-specific aspects of conflict is extensively integrated into all parts of CMI’s work.

Région d’intérêt

CMI’s programme is focused on making meaningful contributions to peace processes in three regions: the Middle East and North Africa, Eurasia and Sub-Saharan Africa.


CMI works closely with all conflicting parties in some of the world’s most intractable conflicts to forge lasting peace through informal dialogue and mediation.

Moyens d’action

CMI helps to create spaces for negotiated solutions of violent conflicts by involving all relevant actors in the pursuit of sustainable peace. CMI facilitates dialogue, mediates between conflicting sides, provides capacity-building and mediation support at all stages of conflict management and peace processes, and uses its expertise to support the broader peace building community.

Approche de la paix

CMI’s vision is based on the conviction that all conflicts can be resolved.

CMI’s work rests on the principles of impartiality, local ownership, inclusiveness, coordination and complementartity.
