Our mission is to improve protection for civilians caught in conflicts around the world. We call on and advise international organizations, governments, militaries, and armed non-state actors to adopt and implement policies to prevent civilian harm. When civilians are harmed we advocate for the provision of amends and post-harm assistance. We bring the voices of civilians themselves to those making decisions affecting their lives.

The organization was founded in 2003 to advocate for recognition and assistance for the civilian victims of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. More than a decade later, CIVIC is a go-to source for effective civilian protection policy and practice and is a leading voice for civilians living in conflict throughout the world.

Our ultimate vision is a future where parties involved in conflict go above and beyond their legal obligations to minimize harm to civilians.
