Conflict Mediation and Governance - Fixed Obligation Grant (FOG)
DATES: July 2012 - July 2014
This grant supports The Liaison Office’s (TLO) efforts to facilitate the formal integration of communities and their traditional governance structures within Afghanistan’s newly emerging peace, governance and reconstruction framework. More specifically, TLO will establish five Commissions on Conflict Management (CCM’s), formal-informal justice bodies dedicated to resolving resource-based conflicts, in Khost, Paktika, and Logar. The CCMs will work closely with female elders/wise women (spinsari) groups to help diffuse potentially destabilizing conflict, as well contribute to good governance by supporting the Afghan government’s (specifically sub-national level) responsibility to serve its citizens by promoting peace, dialogue and improving human security.
