Search Indonesia

Search for Common Ground (Search) is an international peace building organization that promotes the peaceful transformation of violent conflicts. Search has a mission to transform how individuals, organizations, and governments deal with conflict- away from adversarial approaches and toward cooperative solutions. Search seeks to help conflicting parties understand their differences and act on their commonalities. Search implements projects from 56 offices in 35 countries, including in Africa, Asia,Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and the United States.

Search has been working in Indonesia since 2002 and is implementing programs in conflict transformation, peace building, prison reform, conflict-sensitive journalism, electoral participation and initiatives with youth, media,government agencies, informal religious leaders and women’s groups across the country.


Since July 2018, Search for Common Ground Indonesia, in collaboration Management Systems International(MSI) and Love Frankie, has been implementing Harmoni, which seeks to increase the resilience of Indonesian society to intolerance and violent extremism (VE)by supporting communities, migrants and key institutions to increase their awareness of related risks and to develop more effective tools and systems to bolster tolerance and counter the appeal of VE organizations (VEOs),reintegrate former VEO members and supporters, and support migrants. As a part of the collaboration, Search could implement CVE activities which emphasize on promoting peaceful messages through journalism and use of medias, trainings for DGC officers, and CSO network building for CVE efforts.

Furthermore, Search for Common Ground Indonesia and Harmoni also supports the capacity building of government institutions and civil society organizations in the process of rehabilitation and reintegration of former terrorist inmates and former ISIS deportees from Syria and surrounding areas.On the support for government institutions in the issue of rehabilitation and reintegration of terrorist convicts, Search for Common Ground Indonesia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Directorate General of Penitentiary (DGC) of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia which has been in effect since August 2018. In the memorandum, Search for Common Ground Indonesia is committed in continuing the support for DGC on the implementation of Conflict Management Training and Life Management Training(CMT-LMT), which has been implemented by Search in many DGC capacity building programs since 2009.

So far, the training modules and curriculum compiled are still general in nature or focused on application in correctional institutions,or in directorates that are related to the guidance function in correctional institutions. To further strengthen technical support for DGC and the technical implementation units (Unit Pelaksana Teknis – UPT) under its umbrella, Search,through the Harmoni Program, will compile CMT-LMT guidelines which are more focused on handling clients who undergo parole processes. For this purpose,Search seeks to reconstruct a CMT-LMT manual focused on the reintegration of former terrorist convicts, especially those who are still in the parole process.
