Evacuees cast their shadows on tents as they arrive at a UNHCR refugee camp fleeing violence in Libya near the border crossing of Ras Jdir March 5, 2011. Many foreign nationals have already been evacuated from Libya, where Muammar Gaddafi's forces are battling rebels on several fronts and unrest has erupted in the capital Tripoli. An organized international airlift has started to help some of the tens of thousands of foreign workers who have fled into Tunisia.

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.
