Transitions Series

The Berghof Transitions Series includes case studies initially produced within the framework of the Berghof research project Resistance/Liberation Movements and Transitions to Politics: Building a Network of Experience. Since then, we have maintained this space in order to provide an opportunity for “insider experts” from resistance/liberation movements that take part in our research and capacity-building activities to reflect critically on their past or ongoing conflict transformation experience. The views expressed are those of the authors and contributors, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Berghof Foundation.

Unterrichtshilfen und Materialien

Jedes Jahr veröffentlichen fünf Friedensforschungsinstitute in Deutschland ein Friedensgutachten. Die Berghof Foundation (Programm Friedenspädagogik und Globales Lernen) hat zum zweiten Mal ein pädagogisch-didaktisches Begleitmaterial erarbeitet und veröffentlicht: Friedensgutachten 2016 didaktisch. Das Friedensgutachten 2016 didaktisch setzt sich insbesondere mit den Themen Flucht(ursachen), Kleinwaffen-/Rüstungsexport, Schutzverantwortung (Responsibility to Protect) sowie Radikalisierung/“Islamischer Staat“ auseinander. Es wendet sich vor allem an Schulen (Sekundarstufe II) und macht diese brandaktuellen, gesellschaftlich kontrovers diskutierten Herausforderungen mit Texten, Fotos, Karikaturen und Arbeitshinweisen als didaktische Handreichung zugänglich. Die Broschüre entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Institut für Friedensforschung und Sicherheitspolitik an der Universität Hamburg (IFSH) und wurde von der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg, Behörde für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Gleichstellung gefördert.Es wird eine Schutzgebühr von 5,00€ erhoben.

A model for human rights organisations and donor organisations

This guide offers a model and elaborates its recommendations for threatened human rights organisations and donor organisations on dealing with threat in an integrated manner. It specifically focuses on incorporating a psychosocial approach into the organisations’ routines, spaces and structures as a crucial element of integrated threat management. Drawing together lessons and insights from a joint learning process within the framework of the project “MAPA”, it emphasises how HRO and donors can work together towards achieving this goal. The guide is meant to help initiate a change process and stimulate further engagement with the topic, thereby seeking to contribute to maintaining human rights organisations’ scope for action in violent contexts. Understood as complementary to existing literature, this interactive guide provides links to other publications on the topic.

Challenges and Opportunities for Female Combatants’ Post-War Community Leadership: Lessons Learnt...

Workshop Report

This report synthesises lessons learnt on the challenges and opportunities for female combatants’ transition into post-war community leadership in the Philippines and in Aceh (Indonesia) based on a peer-advice workshop convened in Cotabato City, Philippines, in April 2016, with funding from the Robert Bosch Foundation. The workshop brought together former female members of the Free Aceh Movement (GAM) of Aceh (Indonesia) and current members of the Bangsamoro Women’s Auxiliary Brigade (BIWAB) of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) in Mindanao (Philippines). The report offers key policy recommendations and support options for national and international peacebuilding and development agencies, particularly in contexts of asymmetric conflict between a state and one or more non-state armed groups.
