Blurb/Shorttext:
This book analyzes the role and importance of local communities in the reintegration of ex-combatants in Liberia and Sierra Leone. The author argues that reintegration is more than just a process of cutting the ties of ex-combatant with their military lives; it is also a process aiming at strengthening the ties of ex-combatants with their communities. Therefore for reintegration to help the transition from war to sustainable peace, it is crucial to manage the delicate balance between the expectations of ex-combatants and the needs of the communities. The author uses Liberia and Sierra Leone to show different ways through which communities assist the reintegration of ex-combatants; but also to highlight current gaps and weaknesses of DDR processes to address community needs as well as build on their potentials for improved reintegration. He concludes with useful recommendations both at policy and program levels.
