The Global Center, in collaboration with the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague and the Youth Arts, Development and Entrepreneurship Network East Africa, convened the second of three regional meetings developed to support civil society actors’ role in the rehabilitation and reintegration (R&R) of individuals associated with and affected by terrorism.
Supported by the US Department of State, the regional workshop brought together over 20 representatives from civil society and academia across the Greater Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, and Tanzania) to discuss the current R&R landscape in the region, share good practices and guidance for effective R&R strategies and programs, and develop a set of recommendations for government, civil society, and other actors on advancing civil society-led approaches to R&R in the shape of a regional action agenda.
The workshop also included a capacity building element on organizational, grants development and administration, and strategic communications, led in collaboration between the Global Center, Albany Associates, and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development's Center of Excellence on Countering and Preventing Violent Extremism. During the workshop, a second round of small grants was announced to support pilot projects focused on enhancing the capacity of civil society organizations to support R&R in the Greater Horn of Africa.
