DDR and Transitional Justice: Bridging the Divide?

This article explores the complex relationship between disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration of ex-combatants (DDR) and transitional justice. While both DDR and transitional justice often operate simultaneously, neither process has traditionally been designed with the other in mind. In fact, they are often in tension or competition, pursuing competing demands and potentially drawing on the same scarce donor pools. While scholars and practitioners of transitional justice have become somewhat attuned to the presence of DDR processes in countries emerging from conflict, and the challenges and opportunities they present for transitional justice, we observe that by comparison, it is only fairly recently that DDR policies, if not programmes, have begun to take account of the demands and practice of transitional justice. We argue that while the activities of DDR and transitional justice may often be in tension, in some instances they might be designed to operate in a more complementary fashion. However, for this to even be conceivable, it is essential that scholars and practitioners of each seek to understand the work of the other better.

    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but
    have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from
    someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  109. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it
    can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she
    has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

  110. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

  111. Greetings! Very helpful advice within this article!
    It is the little changes that will make the largest changes.
    Many thanks for sharing!

  112. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away
    your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to
    read?

  113. I needed to thank you for this fantastic read!! I absolutely enjoyed every bit of it.
    I’ve got you book marked to look at new things you post…
