Psychosocial Support in Peacebuilding and Reconciliation for Conflict Affected Societies

Psychosocial Support in Peacebuilding and Reconciliation for Conflict Affected Societies

 by Anne Kubai and Kathleen Angi

The title of this report, “In the end no winners, no losers” is a statement made by a survivor of violence in Medellin, during an interview with victims of the conflict in Colombia in July 2017.This statement aptly captures the convolutions of peacebuilding and reconciliation work in conflict affected societies.
The “baseline research” on which this report is based, was commissioned by Felm and covers three different conflict settings: Colombia, Nepal and Syria. The primary objective is to deepen Felm’s understanding of how psychosocial support, its approaches and tools, could be better utilized and integrated in a more systematic and comprehensive way into peacebuilding and reconciliation processes in complex situations, during and after the conflict, and ultimately bring peace, justice and reconciliation in conflict-affected societies.
