The Kofi Annan Foundation is often asked to intervene in crises, as an impartial independent advocate, facilitator or mediator. In recent years we have provided such counsel to Burkina Faso, Colombia, Iraq, Kenya, Myanmar, and Senegal, among other countries.
Kofi Annan also participates in problem-solving missions for The Elders.
The Foundation provides policy support based on thematic and country monitoring and analysis, aided by an informal network of national leaders, multilateral organisations, business leaders, international NGOs, and civil society activists, including women’s groups and faith organisations.
The Foundation collaborates in this area with the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue, the International Crisis Group, and the International Centre for Transitional Justice, among other partners.
