At Center for Civilians in Conflict (CIVIC), our team is focused on helping civilians caught in the midst of armed conflict. We work directly with people who have the power to transform the planning, conduct, and aftermath of conflicts for civilians—from military officials and policymakers to UN bodies and civilians themselves. Our staff is found in places like Iraq, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ukraine, and Afghanistan, with our headquarters in Washington, DC. Learn more about our vision here.
