Ex-combatants in South Sudan
Exploring the link between socio-economic reintegration, armed violence and security
This project explores the socio-economic effects of Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) programs for ex-combatants in fragile post-conflict situations. The aim is to determine empirically whether the provision of socio-economic reintegration activities serves as a tool for converting combatants or specialists in violence into peaceable civilians and thereby reducing armed violence and improving peace and stability. The outcomes of socio economic reintegration efforts will be analyzed at the level of: a) livelihoods and income, b) access to land, capital and housing and c) levels and perceptions of security. The project will examine the practical effects of socio-economic reintegration in the rapidly growing urban center of Juba, capital of South Sudan.
