About this book

A long-term evaluation and analysis of the UK's involvement in Sierra Leone before and after the conflict which ended in 2002. This book looks at how UK intervention moved from initial involvement through to war fighting and then post-conflict reconstruction, specifically of the security infrastructure.

Reviews

'Drawing on truly impressive source material collected over years, the authors document brilliantly not only how SSR was pioneered in Sierra Leone, but also the bureaucratic politics that saw the Department for International Development move into traditional security work, and later back to more 'suitable' activities like legal reform, prison reform, and access to justice.' - African Affairs
