Demobilizing and reintegrating Rwanda's ex-combatants : Ayudar a los ex combatientes a bajar las armas (Spanish)

Years of violence and conflict in Rwanda - after the collapse of the Arusha peace process in April 1994 and the ensuing genocide - spilled over into neighboring countries, fuelling, in particular, war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The government had implemented the first stage of a Rwanda demobilization and reintegration program (RDRP) with the support of United Nations Development Program (UNDP) between 1997-2001, during which time more than 18,000 RPA (renamed Rwanda defense force (RDF) in 2002) soldiers were demobilized. Program is making considerable progress in enabling thousands of former combatants to return to productive civilian life. To further enhance prospects for economic reintegration of ex-combatants, the RDRP has recently initiated supplementary vocational training, apprenticeship support, capacity-building for economic associations, literacy training, and support for formal education.
