May 3, 2012 Sierra Leone: Resisting Land Deals
"While the government of Sierra Leone says it is now
supporting farmers with its smallholder commercialization
program, at the same time it is promoting massive foreign
direct investment in farmland in the country. It claims this
will not harm smallholders or food security. ...
Participants at the conference [of affected land owners and
land users] strongly disagreed." - The Oakland Institute
Dec 12, 2004 Liberia-Sierra Leone: Consolidating Peace?
"The [multilateral] interventions in Liberia and Sierra Leone are
failing to produce states that will be stable and capable of
exercising the full range of sovereign responsibilities on behalf
of their long-suffering populations. This is essentially because
they treat peacebuilding as implementing an operational checklist,
involving [quick] fixes to various institutions and processes" -

Oct 31, 2004 Sierra Leone: Truth and Reconciliation Report
The Sierra Leone and Reconciliation Commission issued its final
report last week at the United Nations, culminating over two years
of hearings of testimony from witnesses including large numbers of
children who had been victimized by the 11 years of conflict
between 1991 and 2002. The launch gave special prominence to a
"child-friendly" edition of the report, the result of a process in
which children themselves participated not only in providing
testimony but also in the writing and editing process.
