About this book

This book provides a critical analysis of the reintegration challenges facing ex-combatants. Based on extensive field research, it includes detailed case studies of ex-combatant reintegration in Namibia, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.

About the authors

He has also written reports on ex-combatant reintegration in Liberia and Burundi for the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations.

Reviews

"This is a deeply compelling and richly researched account of the 'big business' of post-conflict reintegration programs for ex-combatants. International efforts in these programs have a taken-for-granted set of assumptions both tacit and acknowledged and contradictions that McMullin identifies with rigorous ethnographic and historical analysis. A must-read for anyone

working on or with the world's many post-war recovery and development efforts. Lucidly written and focused on solutions for the future." - Catherine Lutz, Brown University, USA

"When re-entering civilian life I wish that the ex-combatants I have been researching would have benefitted from some of the insights this book gives. Generally humanitarian aid-workers know little of the local context and therefore do so many things wrong during Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) exercises. If you read this book and take some of the important findings back into the field it will greatly help not just ex-combatant reintegration efforts but entire societies struggling to get back on their feet after civil wars If you don't it is just business as usual." - Mats Utas, The Nordic Africa Institute, Sweden

"This is a well-researched book that makes an important contribution to the debate about disarmament, demobilization and reintegration. Built on a combination of theoretical insights and detailed empirical work in a number of countries the author argues convincingly for an approach beyond the narrow focus of security concerns. The result is a fine piece of work that contributes to the new critical literature about the many aspects of peacekeeping and peace-building that situates itself in the realm of political ethnography." - Morten Bøås, Fafo Institute for Applied International Studies, Norway
