Founded in 1975, the Center for International Policy (CIP) promotes a U.S. foreign policy based on international cooperation, demilitarization and respect for basic human rights. The Center has led or played a vital role in an impressive number of citizens’ initiatives. We campaigned to make sure that a government’s human rights record became a factor in allocating foreign aid. We played an important role in Central America’s post-conflict reconciliation, the effort to end the counter-productive isolation of Cuba, and efforts to limit military assistance to the Western Hemisphere, especially Colombia. This work continues today, along with security programs in Asia, work on illegal financial flows, and a new effort to increase citizen participation in Central America.
