SCOPE - Sustaining a Culture of Peace
Increasing tensions based on political, religious, socio-economic and natural resource-based conflicts indicate that Tanzania’s culture of peace needs strengthening. SDC will therefore promote the use of peaceful means to prevent and deal with conflicts. It will support the Government to establish a conflict early warning and response system, and state and non-state actors to increase public space to address conflictual topics, in particular for women and marginalized.
Conflict & fragility
Tanzania takes pride in being a nation of peace and security, which can to a large extent be credited to the model of nation building adopted right after independence. This culture of peace, however, worked at the cost of restraining political and religious differences and the repression of dissident voices. Current lines of conflict can be divided into 3 main themes: i. Political tensions (inter- and intra-party competition, unresolved issue of the Union between Zanzibar and mainland, inter- and intra-faith tensions). ii. Natural resources (land distribution and expectations regarding benefits from natural gas extractions). iii. Socio-economic disparities and discrimination (rising income inequality, large youth population, gender-based violence).
