This project is on the integration of armed groups in peace processes, focusing on how various types of armed groups - in terms of their embeddedness in their societies - require different types of responses. The role of existing social structures in facilitating integration, monitoring armed groups, or preventing the return to violence is seen as key. This joint CMI and PRIO project complements the project 'From War-Termination to Sustainable Peacebuilding?' - also known as 'What Kind of Peace is Possible' (WKOP), administered by the North-South Institute (Canada), cooperating with partner institutes in six case countries (Afghanistan, Mozambique, Haiti, Palestine, Guatemala, Sri Lanka)
