Monopoly, Legitimacy, Force: DDR-SSR Liberia

Monopoly, Legitimacy, Force: DDR-SSR Liberia

Published by Josef Ansorge
Security matters a great deal, especially to the most vulnerable members
of a society. Yet the measures or processes that can most effectively
achieve security are valid points of contention. The Disarmament, Demobilization,
and Reintegration (DDR) and Security Sector Reform (SSR)
programs in Liberia pose rich cases for the delineation of lessons learned
as well as the identification of curious contradictions and potential paradoxes
in the way these kinds of large-scale, postconflict reconstruction
initiatives are designed, implemented, and measured. This chapter is a
candid, down-range assessment by two practitioner-scholars who were
closely involved with different aspects of the programs. While the DDR–
SSR efforts in Liberia could be regarded as a success simply because they
have persisted and there has not been a renewed outbreak of violence, at
this stage it is safe to surmise that they have consolidated peace and security
as well as contributed to the reconstruction of that country. This chapter
describes the programs, highlights best practices, and identifies a
number of areas for improvement, as well as important lessons and observations
relevant to similar efforts in other countries.
