Council on Foreign Relations Multimedia Crisis Guides

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has been actively developing a series of interactive Crisis Guides that help explain complex international conflicts and crisis quickly and engagingly. The list of guides currently includes:
crisis guides
Crisis Guide: The Global Economy
An in-depth, multimedia look at the causes and consequences of the global economic crisis that seeks to unravel the questions surrounding the downturn and shed light on its policy implications, drawing on insights from leading thinkers on economics and international affairs.

Crisis Guide: Climate Change
Climate change is one of the most challenging problems facing the international community. Explore its causes, effects, and various policy options. 

Crisis Guide: The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Learn about the unique mixture of religion, nationalism, historical and economic grievances, territory, and geopolitics underpinning this conflict.

Crisis Guide: Darfur
An Emmy-winning examination of the crisis in Darfur. Learn about the history of Sudan, the international context of the crisis, and the “responsibility to protect.”

Crisis Guide: The Korean Peninsula
Over half a century since Korean War’s end, conflict persists on the peninsula. Explore the military, economic, and nuclear dimensions of this frozen conflict.

Other interactive “explainers” are available as well, providing timelines, maps and slideshows on topics of global interest. Browse the full collection here.

Also available are a series of Academic Modules developed to support course development around topics where the CFR has expertise. Find out more here.
