by Saskia Baas
Provides an insiders account of the workings of an armed rebel movement. Offers a thorough account of the Sudanese conflicts. A critical analysis of post-conflict security dynamics and the role of DDR policy, and is relevant for policy makers. From Civilians to Soldiers and from Soldiers to Civilians: Mobilization and Demobilization in Sudan investigates the processes of mobilization and demobilization of fighters during civil war.
Why do civilians, at some point during a conflict, decide to participate in the violence of the war?
What are the consequences of becoming part of a guerilla movement? And, once a civil war has come to an end, how can former fighters be reintegrated into civilian life?
In answering these questions, the author draws on in-depth interviews she conducted with current and former combatants in Sudan.
She paints a vivid picture of the people who fought as part of these movements.
The book provides new insights into the dynamics of violent conflict by looking at conflict as it is seen through the eyes of those directly involved.
