Abstract
Studies show that 40 percent of existing child soldiers are girls. In order to make and sustain peace in war-affected countries, it is important to ensure that all members of a community, including women and girls, are reintegrated successfully. Failure of successful reintegration of former girl soldiers may result in a collapse back into war. This research attempts to find current gaps in reintegration programs for girl combatants. Numerous research papers, related articles, and filed studies have been consulted. This thesis proposes that women involved in rebel forces are a microcosm of what is happening in society. Therefore, in order to have a successful reintegration program, it is important to receive direct feedback from these girls so the programs can be implemented successfully in the society.
