A new start, an open end. The reintegration of individual demobilized combatants in Colombia

Moor, M. (2007). A new start, an open end. The reintegration of individual demobilized combatants in Colombia. Intervention, 5(3), 191-202.

This article is the result of a study carried out by IKV Pax Christi, a government programme that aims to demobilize combatants of the guerrilla and paramilitary and reintegrate them into Colombian society. The lessons learned during this research, regarding the failures of the government reintegration programme, have been of great use to the indigenous communities in northern Cauca. As a result, these communities have decided to start their own reintegration programme at the community level with an indigenous approach. This article summarizes the difficulties they encountered, and the lessons they learned.
