Abstract: This paper aims to understand the role that Colombia’s DDR (Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration) programmes have played over the past decade in dismantling armed groups and reintegrating their members into society, as well as their impact on the restauration of peace and security for communities and citizens. It explores the long history of Colombian violence, and places the initiation of the demobilization for former guerilla members and for 30,000 former paramilitary combatants against the background of the country’s changing political and security landscape.
