2. Spotlight: Income generation and peace processes: Perspectives on economic reintegration of ex-combatants in Colombia
MetadataShow full item record
International lessons learned indicate that ex-combatants consistently identify income generation as one of the key factors for successful reintegration. Successful economic reintegration of ex-combatants is also a critical element in achieving a durable peace, given the evidence of a strong connection between limited income generation and recidivism among ex-combatants. This Spotlight analyzes the evolution of government policies on economic reintegration over the past decades, and presents findings from a recent study by IOM/USAID on the factors for success for collective productive projects.
