Summary "This book deals with processes of disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration of former combatants in a broad variety of postwar contexts (Côte d'Ivoire, Peru, Chechnya, Kurdistan, Colombia, France, Canada, Russia, Serbia, Uganda, Sardinia), in an attempt to bring together scholars from various disciplines, mostly historians (of the First and the Second World Wars) and political scientists. Back to classical approaches of DDR, which are normative and prescriptive and focused on the short term, this book attempts to unpack postwar situations as complex inter-connections between political, social, and cultural dynamics. It also points out possible difficulties of exiting of the war violence."-- Provided by publisher
"This edited volume deals with the reintegration and trajectories of intrastate or interstate war veterans. It raises the question of the effects of the war experience on ex-combatants with regards, in particular, to the perpetuation of a certain level of violence as well as the maintaining of structures, networks, and war methods after the war. The book considers various modalities of reintegration and analyzes how they are linked to resources, statuses, and sociabilities that were all built during the war. The various chapters of the book also analyze the role of policies that were made for war veterans, the way society welcomed them back, and the social and economic context."-- Provided by publisher
