Internal/External Vacancy #127/2019
GIZ- Social and economic reintegration of ex-combatants and conflict-affected groups in Ethiopia
 

The project “Social and economic reintegration of ex-combatants and conflict-affected groups in Ethiopia” responds to the request of the Prime Minister of Ethiopia to the Federal Government of Germany to support the reintegration of disarmed and demobilized ex-combatants. The promise of reintegration support for former insurgent groups is part of the Ethiopian Government’s peace initiative. Supporting the Government in delivering on that promise, and helping the members of these insurgent groups to regain a civilian life therefore contributes to maintaining the momentum of the peace initiative. Derived thereof, the main objective of the project is ex-combatants from Ethiopian resistance groups receive effective support to promote their social and economic reintegration. The methodological approach of GIZ’s technical support is to strengthen the capacities of the government and relevant national and regional institutions to deliver on the promise of reintegration support, while extending individual capacity building support to ex-combatants.

 The project is broken down in three fields of activity:

(1) improving the capacities of the governmental Project Office for Reintegration and its regional counterparts, including the development of standards, procedures and implementation strategies;

(2) supporting the social reintegration of ex-combatants through an Information, Counselling and Referral System (ICRS);

(3) supporting the professional reintegration of ex-combatants through life skills and vocational training, as well as technical assistance in entering the labor market.
