CPPF has a long record of programmatic activity on Disarmament, Demobilization, Reintegration (DDR) in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Our work on migration, return, and DDR expands across most regions we work on with our UN counterparts. In addition to providing an evidence-based understanding of what has worked and not worked in DDR interventions, CPPF and UVC have led research collaborations in Central Africa that advance our understanding of where ex-combatants and displaced communities return to and why; and of the challenges that displaced people face in accessing systems of justice.
Migration: CPPF has been in conversation with DPPA-DPO to convene an expert workshop on migration. This workshop will aim to identify migration trends in light of the war in Ukraine and help inform the next Secretary-General’s report on migration.
