Dealing with violent extremism (VE) has emerged as a central framework of analysis and policy-making in most Western and non-Western government agencies. It is also heavily shaping the programming of non-governmental agencies, not least due to the availability of related funding lines.
Background and Executive Summary
43 diaspora organisations supported by the DEMAC initiative showed their intention to be full participants in enhanced humanitarian response by creating and signing up to 17 joint diaspora commitments as part of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in May 2016.
A powerful „su“ fills the library container of Relief International’s educational centre in the Jordanian refugee camp Azraq. Once the sound of their voices had faded, the 18 participants of the course conducted by Berghof Foundation shake out their arms and legs in relief. The joint exercise helps the Syrian women and men to release straining and stressful emotions, feelings, thoughts and experiences. All participants are Syrians volunteers working for various international organisations. The course supports them in their oftentimes challenging work.
In May, Como-Berghof’s Andrés Home co-facilitated a strategy workshop with regional coordinators and the national office of Colombia’s Territorial Renovation Agency. Our team supports peace actors in Colombia in the implementation of the Peace Agreement between the former FARC Guerilla and the Colombian Government. The Territorial Renovation Agency (ART) is tasked with implementing rural development, a key element of the Peace Accord, through a process of participatory development of PDETs (Development plans with a territorial focus) in 16 subregions of Colombia.
