About this book


The Lomé Peace Accord, signed in 1999, presented significant implications, challenges, and possibilities for post-conflict Sierra Leone, but the literature on post-conflict Sierra Leone only scantily addresses these issues. This project seeks to address the void in the literature on post-Lomé Sierra Leone.

Bibliographic information


"In spite of the copious literature produced on the Sierra Leone civil conflict over the past two decades, very little attention, if any at all, has been devoted exclusively to the terms of the Peace Accord as a basis for evaluating post-war reconstruction programs. Sierra Leone beyond the Lomé Peace Accord provides a detailed account on the successes and failures of ongoing post-conflict efforts." - Raphael Chijioke Njoku, Associate Professor of History, University of Louisville, Kentucky, USA
