Many reintegration programmes focus on ex-combatants rather than communities, and this limited focus has created divisions among community members and strained reintegration processes in many post-war environments. In view of this limited approach to reintegration, more and more academics and practitioners are arguing for a community-based (CB) approach as a way of addressing resentment among community members for more effective peace-building. But how can CB integration programmes be planned and implemented in post-war environments? These recommendations are based on empirical research in Sierra Leone, which explores how community-based reintegration programmes can facilitate more effective peace-building.
