Research for the BMZ in select topics at the interface between development and security




  • Building Peace and Social Cohesion

The United Nations (UN) are involved in a large number of peacebuilding missions. Critics repeatedly ask how civil and military authorities are to work together. The establishment of a UN Peacebuilding Commission is intended to set standards and new approaches are to be introduced in the field of demobilization. A BICC project funded by the BMZ (Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) will, amongst others, deal with the institutional cooperation between various UN sub-organizations.
