Warlord Democrats – Agents of Change or Instigators of Insecurity?
Workshop in Uppsala 20-21 September
In the process of post-war democratization former enemies must shift to compete through ballots instead of bullets. However, former warlords often become a part of the new democratic system, using their resources and networks generated from the war. What effect on the quality of democracy has the inclusion of warlords?
The Nordic Africa Institute organizes a two-day workshop, 20-21 September 2012 in Uppsala, to discuss this and other questions related to Warlord Democrats (pdf opens in new window).
Deadline to submit abstracts is April 23, 2012.
