Once were warriors: Reintegrating ex-combatants

in: UNEVOC Forum 13, 2008 (Supplement to UNESCO-UNEVOC Bulletin 14)

This edition of the UNEVOC Forum provides a snapshot into countries emerging from conflict, examining some of the challenges faced, and vocational training issues to be addressed, when seeking to reintegrate ex-combatants into civilian life. Prolonged conflict damages not only

educational structures but also educational relationships and economic livelihoods. Short-term actions by the international community after conflict or disaster often focus on rebuilding educational structures. This Forum provides an update on efforts to rebuild livelihoods and lives through effective educational relationships and reflects on how more learner-focused processes could

lead to improved outcomes.
