During the eleven years of civil war in Sierra Leone, more than two million people—more than half of the population—were displaced and between 50,000 and 70,000 people were killed. In BICC Policy Brief 4\2019 the author Elke Grawert addresses post-war reintegration and reconciliation.
The researcher gives the following policy recommendations based on her analyses of transitional justice processes in Sierra Leone:
\ Support the early transformation from a ‘truth and reconciliation’ process after peace agreements towards the rule of law.
\ Make sure that perpetrators do not receive more support than victims.
\ Consider non-interference in community reintegration, but facilitate inclusive reintegration for young people.
\ Define an exit strategy for international assistance of (re-)integration.
