This course offers an overview of the disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration (DDR) of ex-combatants in countries recovering from conflict. It outlines the concepts, definitions, and types of DDR approaches that are followed by various international, and national agencies to demobilise armed groups, and to return and reintegrate their rank and file into civilian society. The short course will also map the evolution of programmatic efforts over time, and how the various shifts have influenced DDR effectiveness. This short course incorporates a gendered focus on the reintegration of women and girl combatants; and on the age-specific needs of child soldiers. It also involves a deep engagement with the question of ex-combatant re-recruitment; and the role of ex-combatant agency in the decision to re-engage in violence. 

This is a self-paced online course where students can access and work through the material at their own convenience. You will have access to this course for 3 months.

There are no formal education or professional requirements, however, all learning will be delivered in English, therefore we recommend minimum IELTS Level 6 for learners to get the most from the spoken and written content.
