Abstract

The processes of post-conflict reconstruction are some of the most complex and important tasks that the international community is taking on. Armed conflicts affect about forty fragile states in the world. The destruction they produce leaves in the shadows the societies in which the wars have ended and projects for the rehabilitation of the State and society have begun. When wars break out, transformations take place in societies: the initial actors are diversified, the weak economy is transfigured in multiple economies and illegal networks of consumer goods, weapons, people and natural resources, and accentuates the violation of human rights. If the difficulties are overcome and there is a stable peace negotiation and a verified disarmament process, then comes the long and hard battle for the reconstruction of society. During the war violence becomes a way of life and survival. The effort to move from weapons to non-violent work; from the imposition of force by consensus; of flight and clandestinity to live in freedom, and of the use of the illegal economy to the legal one are some of the most conflictive aspects, as well as the relocation of the displaced and the act of the justice regarding the crimes perpetrated during the conflict. NGOs and international actors such as the UN play a crucial role in this process, although stable reconciliation must be achieved by the essential actors.
