The International Crisis Group is one of the top OSINT resources I've run into. I refer to it often. The group is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organizsation committed to preventing and resolving deadly conflicts. It has many prominent Western diplomats and politicians on board from the U.S. and roughly 50 other countries, including America's NATO allies. Here's some fact about them:

•1995, the year Crisis Group was founded
•US$15.5 million, annual budget. Roughly half comes from Western governments. 
•Some 130 permanent staff worldwide, from 46 nationalities speaking 53 languages
