A Close Look at the Afghan Peace and Reintegration Program (APRP)
The United States Institute of Peace has posted a publication on its web site entitled "Impact or Illusion? Reintegration under the Afghanistan Peace and Reintegration Program". The APRP, as it is sometimes called, has been in existance for over one year. The Afghan APRP aims to reintegrate insurgents (Taliban and others) back into Afghan society promising jobs, financial incentives, security, and a clean slate. Results have been dissappointing. You can read online or download the publication, wrote by DeeDee Derksen, here on the web page of the United States Institute of Peace.
