The Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration Programme (DDR)
Launched in 1991 following the civil war, the ‘Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration‘ programme aimed to rehabilitate over 50,000 former militia fighters by integrating them in military and administrative positions in public intuitions. The programme has been criticized for being selective and incomplete as many political parties still retain large amounts of weapons.
