Armed conflicts reverse the achievements of social and economic development and continue to be a cause of immense human suffering. For post-conflict stabilisation the (re-)integration of people engaged in conflict is a key to regaining stability. FAKT has facilitated processes in West and Central Africa and in South East Asia to redefine the role and concepts of vocational training institutions and youth programmes in post-war situations and in the context of national rehabilitation programmes. We conducted studies on the revitalisation of conflict affected areas and the impact of projects aiming to reintegrate ex-combatants. We have developed integrated program approaches for promoting employment of conflict affected youth and designed guidelines for impacts monitoring of measures for social integration.
Humanitarian and development agencies do their best to mitigate conflicts and promote peace – but their actions may also do harm. We are supporting development actors to develop conflict sensitive programme approaches and systems and conduct impact evaluations of peace programs and human rights interventions. In the Philippine province of Mindanao we implement a capacity building project which assists a national bank in developing conflict sensitive methods for lending and investment in Local Government Units.
