Haiti DDR-CVR Training Workshop
Design and provision of training to the members of National DDR Commission in Haiti, followed by the drafting of a new National and Community Violence Reduction strategy aiming to address the gang-related violence and the proliferation of small arms and light weapons across the country (UNDP and BINUH - Haiti)
This course aims to bring together mid-level practitioners, policy makers, researchers and donors from around the world to share experiences and develop a common understanding of possible and innovative approaches to (re)integration and improving community security. Best practice is shared by a pool of experienced trainers, and further explored and challenged by the participants. This course will be held in Barcelona, Spain, from the 20th to the 27th of June 2021.
While reintegration programming has a history of over three decades and many lessons are learned, the successful rehabilitation and reintegration of members of so-called extremist groups is one of the new and complex challenges of today’s peacebuilding efforts. This course at the Center for Civil-Military Relations (CCMR) at the Naval Postgraduate School examines the reintegration of ex-combatants during or at the end of violent conflict - one of the most difficult yet important elements for stabilization and a successful transition from war to peace. This course also explores the rehabilitation, de-radicalization and reintegration of both foreign fighters returning to their country of origin, and members of domestic violent extremist groups.
