Mediating the political transformation of non-state armed groups

Workshop report

Together with the United Nations DPO DDR section, our team working to improve international support to transformation processes of non-state armed groups after wars and conflicts, organised a workshop with international experts in Berlin.


At the event, experts and practitioners from different fields discussed how transformation processes of non-state armed groups can be successful as part of mediated peace processes. They explored framework conditions for mediation processes so they foster effective political transformation of such groups. Mediation as well as DDR practitioners and programming, as discussed in this publication, should for example recognise intra-party dynamics, engage early on and take the long-term perspective into account.
