Author / Copyright Holder: Search for Common Ground
Since 2007 Search for Common Ground (SFCG) has worked with the Forces Armées de la République Démocratique du Congo (FARDC). The project: “Tomorrow is a New Day” is funded by the Dutch Government and has three primary objectives: Raising awareness: Fostering an increased awareness of human rights, conflict transformation principles, and the Military Code among the target brigades. Fighting Impunity: Contributing to the fight against impunity by engaging the FARDC in denouncing violations, monitoring cases before military courts, and implementing an effective media outreach strategy. Collaboration and Solidarity: Improving military-civilian relations by garnering mutual respect and an understanding of human rights, via joint cultural, sporting, dialogue, collaborative action, and income generating activities.  In order to achieve these objectives, the project draws upon high-visibility ‘solidarity activities,’ as well as sensitization sessions for FARDC troops, participatory theatre performances, mobile cinema screenings, and large-scale radio and television multi-media outreach. ...

Mercy Corps implemented the two-year, $2. 5 million, Governance Promotion through Conflict Management in Iraq (GPCMI) program from January 2009 through the end of December 2010. Funded by a generous grant from the Bureau for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor at the United States Department of State, the goal of the program was to help influential Iraqi leaders from all 18 governorates gain the tools, skills, and support they needed to address a wide range of tensions and conflicts that – if left unaddressed – could have escalated to wider violence and threatened to derail Iraq’s fragile transition to peace and democracy. To support this goal, the program: 1) provided Iraqi leaders at the local and provincial level with conflict management and negotiation tools and skills; 2) worked with these leaders to use their new skills to resolve concrete disputes in their communities; and 3) created a nation-wide network of Iraqi conflict management and negotiation practitioners who would continue this work into the future. ...
