Who We Are

About Us

Center for Social Integrity is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering pluralism, diversity and inclusion through three program pillars: Humanitarian and Development, Peace and Conflict, and Research and Policy Advocacy. CSI was founded in 2016 with a focus on long-term peace building, as well as immediate protection and aid for communities affected by conflict. CSI program regions include northern and central Rakhine State, and through partner BASTOB, the Rohingya refugee camps of Cox's Bazar District, Bangladesh.

CSI partners with international NGOs, donors, researchers and other civil society organizations to work towards achieving our vision.
