This volume sets out to break down these stove-pipes and identify positive
associations between DDR and SSR. Drawing on case studies from selected
post-conflict settings, it demonstrates the potential and reality of
improved collaboration between both endeavours. Enhanced cooperation could
avoid negative outcomes. These may include former- combatants dropping out
of programmes, trust undermined in security institutions and the creation
of security vacuums that jeopardise the safety of individuals and
communities. A central claim of this volume is that programmes must be
responsive to the needs and interests of different national actors.
Without understanding the dynamic political processes that shape the
origins, parameters and outcomes of both processes, DDR and SSR may
address security deficits, but will be unfit to support sustainable
transitions towards national recovery and development.
