Evaluating Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration (DDR) In Sustainable Peace: A Case Study of Cibitoke Province in Burundi (2009-2021)

Abstract:

This research draws on the Evaluation of Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration (DDR) in Sustainable Peace in Burundi as from 2009-2021. The research used research design and a qualitative methodology. It assessed how DDR has been used as a tool to bring sustainable peace in Burundi after the conflict through field interviews in Cibitoke province these interviews were conducted to the members of the community, elders and ex combatants too were interviewed as well as ex-combatants. The research seeked to find the DDR mechanisms that actors applied in Burundi, their perceptions of ex-combatants on the efficacy of DDR, and lastly how the community at large has been affected by DDR as tool for sustainable peace. The research argues that DDR is a suitable mechanism to archive sustainable peace. Nevertheless, most of the findings show that DDR has not been fully effective. Based on the feedback of the ex-combatants and the communities who live amongst ex-combatants, the reintegration process faces great challenges in the implementation of DDR. Some of the key challenges are issues of corruption and implementation problems. However, there are positive outcomes where the connection between the ‘D’ and the ‘R’ are significantly addressed by each respective parties such as achievement of long term peace, economic growth and stability in the country.
