Demobilization Page

Demobilizing armed groups once a formal political agreement is negotiated is a very difficult task. In 1995, Catholic Relief Services engaged in a pilot project to help demobilize ULIMO forces in Liberia, which had mixed results.

This is an area of peacebuilding that continues to be difficult for CRS and other agencies. Demobilized soldiers take part in other programs geared towards community restoration and reintegration, such as those in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Uganda.
