TERMS OF REFERENCE
National Contractors: Documentary Producer (individuals or firm), Somalia
Project Name: Connecting across divides: youth building peace in Somalia
Duration: 1st September to 20th September.
Somali Peace Line (SPL) has been undertaking a peacebuilding initiative with a focus on young people in partnership with the Life and Peace Institute (LPI) in three federal member states in Somalia (Southwest – Baidoa, Hirshabelle – Jowhar and Galmudug – Abudwak). The project is designed to transform deeply personal, psycho-social and non-material factors behind clan and identity-based local conflicts, by building meaningful relationships among young men and women in diverse socio-economic, political, and clan identity lines. This project deviates from traditional approaches to peacebuilding: first, it involves interventions towards personal transformation and self-efficacy/self-actualisation of people as peace agents (that is, beyond the building of skills); and second, it brings together conflicting communities to end hostilities, not only in times of violent conflict, but also in times of greater stability. It relies on the conviction that if the individual interactions are respected and appreciated, they may settle disputes in a manner which could otherwise arise in a non-violent way.
In the area of relational transformation, the project aimed to build and transform intergroup relationships among youth groups representing diverse economic, political, religious and social backgrounds (Outcome 1). This is achieved through a set of 14 Sustained Dialogues (over seven months) in the target areas, among strategically selected diverse youth, on a range of sensitive issues on identity, historical narratives, politics as well simple every-day life issues of their choosing. In addition to providing space and methodology for these dialogues, the project provided resources and mentorship to participants so they could jointly design projects (action plans) that address community needs, and it would accompany their implementation. This collective action helped deepen the understanding and friendships developed through Sustained Dialogue.
In addition to fostering intergroup connections, the initiative aimed to bring about personal development in each member. The initiative seeks to contribute to participants’ “self-actualization’ and empowerment via activities such as coaching/mentoring, storytelling, and skill training in self-confidence, leadership, and mediation, in order for them to ‘prepare for voice’ and exercise their agency (Outcome 2). This aims at identifying and cultivating highly personal, non-material components of empowerment and addressing psychosocial causes and sequences of violent conflict, including the internalized stereotypes of young men who are disturbers and young women who play no part in (formal) peace procedures. The methodically planned and continuous TEDx-like talk shows, leading radio shows, will achieve this.
The project sought to provide spaces for youth to realize their self-worth, explore their potentials, and question the personal and group identities that define them via activities that encourage individual growth and change as well as those that foster profound intergroup interactions. In doing so, it laid the groundwork for the development of conscientious youth in the target areas who can see beyond the stereotypes and labels they have given to each other and who can collectively forge a peaceful future where conflicts are peacefully resolved based on the relationships they have developed across divides.
