December 2, 2017 / NUPI

NUPI research fellow Ingvild Magnæs Gjelsvik participated in a workshop organized by the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) in Nairobi in November training participants from Somalia’s Defector Rehabilitation Programme (DRP). The DRP operates under five pillars – outreach, reception of defectors, screening, rehabilitation and reintegration of al-Shabaab fighters. Topics covered in the workshop included radicalization processes, countering and preventing violent extremism (C/PVE), disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) in addition to financing and resource mobilization and profiling and eligibility criteria for the DRP. At the end of the workshop a plan of priorities for DRP was developed in order the guide the further development of the programme.
