Security and Post-Conflict Reconstruction

Dealing with Fighters in the Aftermath of War

Edited by Robert Muggah, January 2009
Published by Routledge

This book provides critical analysis of the changing discourse and practice of post-conflict security-promoting interventions since the cold war, such as disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration (DDR), and security sector reform (SSR). Although the international aid and security sectors exhibit an expanding appetite for peace-support operations in the 21st Century, the effectiveness of such interventions are largely untested. This book aims to fill this evidentiary gap and issues a challenge to 'conventional' approaches to security promotion as currently conceived by military and peacekeeping forces, drawing on cutting-edge statistical and qualitative findings from war-torn areas including Afghanistan, Timor-Leste, Sudan, Uganda, Colombia, and Haiti.
