The Catch 22 of Security and Civilian Disarmament
Community perspectives on civilian disarmament in Jonglei State
This report presents the findings of a disarmament monitoring scheme that was conducted by the South Sudan Action Network on Small Arms (SSANSA) in Jonglei State, from the beginning of the campaign in March 2012 to July 2013. The purpose of the monitoring was to document the processes leading to the surrender of weapons by civilians; the nature of arms collection; ascertain the perceptions of communities on security implications of the disarmament exercise – and use these insights to provide recommendations for a policy move towards conducting ‘pro-people’ civilian disarmament campaign in the state and perhaps elsewhere in South Sudan.
