5 Three Stages of APRP Security & Grievance Resolution
UNCLASSIFIED Three Stages of APRP Security & Grievance Resolution SOCIAL OUTREACH, CONFIDENCE BUILDING, NEGOTIATION CONSOLIDATION OF PEACE AND COMMUNITY RECOVERY DEMOBILIZATION Enrolled APRP Intent Survey Biometric Weapon Reg Transition Assistance Disengagement Training Y Declaration Form Signed Vetting N These are the stages of APRP: Reach out to the insurgents, build their confidence in the program, take them in. Demobilize them, which includes vetting, biometrics, weapons management, and restriction from targeting Assist them in merging back into their community and assist their community with development projects to rebuild both the community and insurgent. Outreach is onogoing and initially focuses on ensuring distribution of GIRoA guidance. Over time, the combination of social outreach via Shuras etc, improvements in local security and increased partnering with GIRoA should build popular confidence in the government, as well as present an attractive alternative to fighting for members of the insurgency. In the field, an event begins with an insurgent making contact with GIRoA or coalition officials—either directly or via an intermediary. What ensues is a negotiation process whereby government officials at the community, district and province level, ICW ANSF and ISAF, discuss the nature of core grievances and desired outcomes. This discussion, which could require multiple meetings over a significant period of time, would result in each insurgent completing an intent to reintegrate form, where they declare in writing their intent to reintegrate, cease violence, and obey the orders of GIRoA officials throughout the process. Once signed (or thumb printed) by the insurgent, initial humanitarian needs can be addressed, and the demobilization and community assessment processes truly begin. During demobilization, PPC and DRC officials (assisted by JS mobile teams and ISAF if necessary) will gather biometrics, collect and register weapons, gather all necessary data, and take actions to place the insurgents on a restricted targeting list (if on JPEL). These steps form the inputs for official vetting, with the ultimate goal to determine eligibility for APRP. Reasons for ineligibility may be: Outstanding criminal record – Jail?; Not an Afghan citizen – Deportation?; Recidivism – Jail?; Ineligible (not an insurgent)? With an official determination made, the community must determine if they will accept the insurgent(s). This step is key as it is deigned to prevent recidivism, and to provide a sense of honor/benefit to the returning insurgents. MoI is responsible for facilitating a relocation if necessary, due to an inability to overcome grievances for example. Vetting complete, the insurgent and GIRoA enter into a written agreement, or Reintegration Declaration, wherein the insurgent declares he renounces violence, will respect the Afghan Constitution, will sever all ties to AQ and terrorism. With an agreement complete, PPCs (supported by JS, ANSF and ISAF) will execute immediate short term projects IAW the community assessment mentioned earlier. These projects are designed to bridge to longer term recovery efforts selectively applied from the “menu of recovery options.” Foundational requirement to provide security and address grievances to ensure a durable outcome.
