EXAMPLES OF GOOD PRACTICE As mentioned earlier, the research overwhelmingly finds that a holistic multisectoral approach is essential for successful disengagement, rehabilitation and reintegration. This section profiles cases of good practice that integrate three or more of the critical themes and areas of intervention in this report. Women-led CSOs innovated this series of evolving practices in direct response to the gap in programming for women and girl returnees: ■■ In Indonesia, a coalition of CSOs is institutionalizing gendered rehabilitation practices through civil society-government collaboration; ■■ In Kenya, women’s organizations are building trust between local women in the community and police as a resource for prevention and reintegration; ■■ In northeast Nigeria, women community leaders are combating stigma and radicalization through disseminating Islamic peace education in schools and on the local radio; ■■ In Pakistan, a CBO has been able to stop women sewing suicide belts and engage them instead in sowing sustainable peace; ■■ In Uganda, a rehabilitation centre run by a women’s organization has helped women and girls heal from trauma and reclaim their dignity through economic independence; ■■ In Lebanon, social workers are developing models for deradicalization through psychosocial therapy in prisons; and, ■■ In Nigeria, psychologists are helping returnees to find a new sense of purpose through psychosocial therapy.
