It asked several major questions: what contributes to or hinders reintegration? Without targeted support, how successful is the reintegration process for former combatants? How different is the reintegration experience of former combatants than the reintegration experience of internally-displaced persons? What is the relationship between identity and reintegration? And what does reintegration look like in the face of weak government support structures? Thus the study examined many aspects of the reintegration process for former combatants.
