Reintegration for peace-building and reconciliation

December 9, 2015, 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Host: Colombia and Guatemala

Languages: English

Where: room 15


Panelist: Joshua Mitrotti, Director General of the Colombian Agency for Reintegration.

Analysing reintegration processes as a key part of peace-building and reconciliation, based on the following points:

  • A reintegration focus to enable citizens undergoing reintegration to overcome their vulnerability and autonomously exercise their civic responsibilities.
  • Principle of co-responsibility: peace-building is not just the responsibility of the State; society as a whole has to commit to it.
  • Intersecting key dimensions for successful reintegration: individual, family, health, education, civic responsibilities, security, productivity, habitability.
  • Reintegration as a process that starts with the individual but should encompass family and community environments.
  • All the vulnerable members of the community (those who are being reintegrated, victims, the poor) live side by side and share the same environments. The State should offer a service that links up the relevant public entities and policies.
  • The role of international cooperation in reintegration processes.
  • Lessons learned and the challenges of Colombia: after 12 years of implementation, 48,358 people are undergoing reintegration and 9,252 people have completed the process.
  • Lessons learned and the challenges of other processes.
