Reintegration Strategies for Ex-Combatants_Trainee

Release Date



  • English


This training module is designed for an audience from a post-conflict country or region, or those who intend to work in such contexts. Trainees may consist of future key players in national reintegration programs and/or an audience of international development workers that are going to assist the DDR processes.
Where indicated, parts of this module can also be applied in more stable contexts, such as where the downsizing of the armed forces calls for an organized reintegration process. This module will introduce you to the key elements of the reintegration strategy. In addition, the module provides lessons learned from a variety of different settings. Over the course of the training, you will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge to your own context and to start making strategic choices for an appropriate reintegration program for your country/region.
The objective of this module is to:
  • Provide you with a sound understanding of the different elements of a general reintegration strategy, the challenges involved and how to address and overcome them.
  • Enable you to draft the essential points of an adapted strategy for the reintegration of ex-combatants in your country of work/interest.
  • Facilitate the exchange of information and lessons learned by providing a standardized set of terms and concepts.
