Abstract:The revealing question on disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) programmes is: what are the factors that influence reintegration in such a way that the target of living together peacefully can be met? Based on fieldwork carried out in 2006, the author uses the case of Burundi to provide insight into an ongoing DDR process. She shows that the main factors that influence reintegration either divide the ex-combatants from the rest of the community or merge the demobilized and the population into the receiving communities. Up to now reintegration has gone relatively well on the social level, but has not yet started on the economic level. Bibliogr., notes. [ASC Leiden abstract]
