CCSI engages with governments, international organizations and companies to perform research, analysis and project monitoring. These engagements extend from CCSI’s core activities:

Analysis and Research
Training and Events
Capacity Enhancements

CCSI’s mission is to advance the effectiveness of the international sanctions systems and their underlying state and corporate implementation capacities. By convening stakeholders, CCSI generates timely, balanced, high-quality research, analysis and events and builds and implements solutions in conflict-affected regions.

The primary contact for arranging such projects is Alix Boucher – our fundraising and project development manager.
