BICC (Bonn International Center for Conversion)

BICC is an independent, not-for profit organisation and deals with a wide range of global topics in the field of peace and conflict research centering on Conversion Studies.

BICC has been supporting the DDR programme in South Sudan since 2009. On the basis of this expertise, it also helps other African countries to implement DDR programmes. The disarmament of former combatants is the first step on a long journey towards reintegration. This is why BICC provides support to a number of African countries in developing measures for a secure stockpiling and marking of small arms and light weapons.
