There has been a lot of work done around this thematic area before a formal working group was started especially Family leading the inter agency working group that prepared the reintegration guidelines. This was followed by high-level widespread endorsement and efforts at launching at national levels and to embed the guidelines in national reform. While there was a proposed phase two to this and Family had developed a funding proposal to implement the Guidelines this working group was formed where members of the group would some way realise this. Phase 2 proposal had four elements:

  • Management of a ‘challenge fund’ to support the implementation of the Guidelines at the national level. 
  • Establishment of regional or international learning and advocacy groups to exchange practice and learning, advocate at the regional level to further promote the Guidelines and offer training and technical support to specific target audiences (e.g. donors)
  • Development of tools and guidance. 
  • Culmination of global learning through an international symposium 

There was also a longitudinal research done based on reintegration experiences from Mexico, Moldova and Nepal.

Once the working group was formed with thirteen members, there were many online meetings and four face to face meetings (three times during the forum meetings and once in India). Members shared their reintegration work and experience with each other which was very useful in terms of planning further work. The key activities members planned were:

  • To contextualise the guidelines in their countries of work
  • Document case management tools and pilot them
  • Plan for a proper M&E for the reintegration work done by members

Last year, in the face to face meeting in new Delhi, a training was organized to understand the RISE tool kit for M&E and one-day dedicated to develop a concept note. When members found difficult to practically proceed with the many things planned they felt the need to develop a theory of change which was completed end of last year.

There was an agreement to create two sub-groups – one to work on case management/practice; and one to work on research/monitoring/assessment.
