What we do



We develop alternative U.S. policies that promote international cooperation, demilitarization and respect for human rights. We publicize and advocate for these policies through traditional and social media outlets, contacts with policy makers to whom we have access and by working in close collaboration with grassroots organizations.


Policy Research

We conduct research in Washington where policy is made and travel around the world to examine the reality of those policies on the ground. Our delegations and investigative missions enable CIP to expose policies that may be counterproductive to U.S. interests and harmful to citizens of countries on the receiving end of those policies.


Transparency & Accountability

For democracy to function, the first prerequisite is transparency. By uncovering and publicizing facts often obscured behind public policy pronouncements, CIP enables citizens to know what government is doing in their name and with their tax dollars. Armed with this information, citizens can hold our leaders accountable.
