Frameworks for Assessing Resilience in Guatemala

Type: PDF Size: 2Mb Published: May 23, 2016

Frameworks for Assessing Resilience (FAR) is a programme initiated by Interpeace, implemented between 2014 and 2016 with local partners in Guatemala, Liberia and Timor-Leste. The goal of the FAR programme is to understand resilience to violent conflict from a local perspective and to determine how existing capacities for resilience can be leveraged and strenghtened to better contribute to sustainable peace.

The participatory process proposed by Interpeace for Guatemala sought to identify and analyze different resilience factors derived from the ways in which societies and their institutions confront the effects of conflicts and their violent expressions. This objective was achieved by a broadly-based participatory process based on the methodology of Participatory Action-Based Research (PAR) that Interpeace has adapted for its use.

This report is the final output of the FAR programme in Guatemala.
