The Conflict Awareness Project (CAP) is an international non-governmental organization dedicated to investigating, documenting, and bringing to justice major arms traffickers, war profiteering networks, and transnational criminal organizations that fuel war, conflict, and natural resource exploitation around the globe.
CAP uniquely focuses on building and supporting precedent-setting, justice-oriented cases that help close the gaps in international and domestic laws and deter private actors and companies.
Our methodological approach is best summed up in three simple words: "Follow The Guns."
With our model FTG approach, CAP has established a parallel NGO process to assist prosecutors and related rule of law bodies at the local, regional and international level with transnational, on-the-ground, investigative research, case support, expert consultation, and training.
CAP works in collaboration with local actors, multilateral organizations, pro bono legal firms, and other partners in the global justice movement to raise awareness and support accountability mechanisms as well as to promote international peace and security and human rights.
