CISR was founded in 1996 as the Humanitarian Demining Information Center, and shortly thereafter became the Mine Action Information Center. Our mission was to conduct post-conflict research, education and training on landmine remediation.
The name was changed to the Center for International Stabilization and Recovery (CISR) in 2008 to more effectively implement activities for victims of conflict and trauma.
CISR is located on the campus of James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. JMU is a nationally recognized state university with a student population of about 18,000. CISR is able to access JMU’s academic resources and capitalize on its trusted, neutral university status.
