Case Studies in War-to-Peace Transition: The Demobilization and Reintegration of Ex-Combatants in Ethiopia, Namibia, and Uganda
AbstractA successful demobilization and reintegration program (DRP) for ex-combatants is the key to an effective transition from war to peace. The success of this first step following the signing of a peace accord signals the end to organized conflict and thereby provides the security necessary for people affected by war to reinvest in their lives and in their country. Undertaken in a peacetime context, a DRP enables a government to restructure its public expenditure in favor of poverty- oriented programs and to consolidate peace efforts.
