PEACE-BUILDING IN POST-CONFLICT SOCIETIES: Rehabilitation of Former Child Soldiers in Northern Uganda

    This book on Peace-building in Post-Conflict Societies examines the child-soldier phenomenon in Northern Uganda from African and global intellectual perspectives. The book discusses strategies used in recruiting and using child-soldiers by armed groups and government forces and also interrogates the extant national, regional and international legal mechanisms for protecting them. The book also critically examines the strategies of disarmament, demobilization, re-integration and rehabilitation (DDRR) of child-soldiers as part of peace-building efforts in post-conflict Uganda. It compares the African traditional approaches with the Western model of re-integration and rehabilitation and recommends reliance on the traditional African systems -but without discarding the relevant aspects of the Western model.
