Incorporating a women, peace and security lens into disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programmes and priorities

As one of its primary goals, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) initiatives seek the means by which disarmament can best assist in the healing and reconciliation of communities damaged by armed violence, and which can address “the security problems that arise during the transition from conflict to peace, when ex-combatants are left without livelihoods or support networks”.3 Through efforts to disarm parties to conflict and to provide combatants with a sustainable path back to civilian life, DDR programmes represent an essential step in ensuring that conflict-affected communities are able to establish peaceful and secure futures.
