Course on Community Based Reintegration and Security (CBRS), Barcelona, Spain
Start date: 21 Jun 2015 9:00am | End date: 28 Jun 2015 3:00pm
The specialised training course on Community Based Reintegration and Security (CBRS) for practitioners is jointly organised by the Barcelona International Peace Resource Centre and Transition International. The course builds upon the successful annual specialised reintegration courses on reintegration of ex-combatants. The course presents an innovative approach for more comprehensive context and community driven reintegration, integration, resilience, and community security programming. It responds to the different dynamics of (re)integration and resilience processes and its target groups (e.g. ex-combatants, returnees, refugees, internally displaced persons, children released from armed forces and groups and other youth at risk) and receiving- and host communities.
Several targeted (re)integration, self-reliance and community security projects usually occur in parallel. They tend to create further divisions in the communities, and are often not sustainable. Most programmes are highly centralised and thereby do not adequately respond to local contexts nor empower local actors to plan, execute, and own the processes. This course explores these dynamics and proposes different means to build bridges between the different reintegration, community security, and resilience approaches in order to foster durable solutions, stability, local economic development, and (re)integration of the different groups in their host- or receiving communities.
