Managing Exits from Armed Conflict

What drives people into and out of armed groups?

When armed conflict breaks out, little escapes its trap. The devastating impact from loss of life, infrastructure, human capital and governance can take decades to overcome.

To better prevent conflict onset and to interrupt conflict cycles, UNIDIR’s Managing Exits from Armed Conflict project (MEAC) generates a unique evidence base on journeys into and out of armed groups that helps practitioners prevent armed group recruitment and supports exits after conflict involvement.
