The assessment revealed distinct preferences concerning future reintegration assistance, according to region, age and gender of the respondents. In the south of Somalia, a large number of young respondents want to return to formal schooling, but they are especially burdened by war-related trauma and exhibit elevated patterns of drug use. Many of the older respondents in the north of Somalia and female respondents throughout of the country prefer monetary support from a future reintegration program. This group might not have realistic expectations about demobilization and the existing modules of reintegration assistance might not meet their specific needs. A third group consisted of respondents with a prior psychological breakdown which had disrupted their every day functioning and who might be at high risk to develop severe psychiatric disorders in the future, as demonstrated in a previous study. The findings suggest that, for planning and implementation of a DDR program, variables such as the expectations, drug use and the psychological stress of individual ex-combatants have to be taken into account.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Intervention 5 (2007), 2, pp. 109-123</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Hinkel, Harald</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
