Two practitioners – Robin Poulton and David DeBeer – are often credited with being involved in the original ‘flame de paix’ activities in West Africa. Correspondence with Poulton, April 2008. This was the case in Cote D’Ivoire in 2004 when Prime Minister Seydou Diarra handed over his arms as part of the DDR process. There was a similar process in Liberia after UNMIL launched a weapons collection programme in 2003. Both processes are now considered failures. Demobilization is also referred to as ‘cantonment’, ‘forced encampment’ or – incorrectly – ‘disarmament’.
