This chapter focuses on three cases of learning on the social and economic reintegration of former combatants. The first case deals with the effort to make timely and predictable long-term funding available for reintegration programs. While a concerted push led to the inclusion of a short-term reinsertion component into the assessed budgets of peace operations, problems remain as longer term efforts still depend on unpredictable voluntary funding. The second case details the shift from an individualistic to a community-based approach. Whereas early programs focused exclusively on individual combatants, practitioners increasingly alerted to the need to extend programs to the entire community in order to facilitate economic and social reintegration of ex-combatants. The third case describes the efforts to integrate gender concerns into reintegration programs.
