Stockholm Initiative on Disarmament, Demobilisation, Reintegration: Testing the Principles
From the very outset, the key objective of the Stockholm Initiative on Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration (SIDDR) was to arrive at a set of recommendations aimed at relevant actors engaged in programmes for disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration of ex-combatants. The goal was to place DDR within the framework of a peace process.
A joint follow-up project was later created in collaboration between the Ministry for
Foreign Affairs of Sweden and the FBA. The idea of the follow-up project was to attempt to test the relevance of the SIDDR recommendations.
The lessons learned from the follow-up project are summarised in this report.
