Socio-Economic Reintegration of Former Combatants

This report details IOM Iraq's project focused on enhancing former combatants' livelihoods through targeted vocational, agricultural, and business development training provided in tandem with in-kind-grants (IKGs) or trade-specific toolkits. Through these measures, the beneficiaries were enabled to directly increase their monthly income or improve their employability, thereby enhancing their social reintegration and reducing the probability of renewed recruitment into sectarian and/or criminal militias in this volatile region of Iraq.
