chapter  2
The case and methodology
Pages 26

Before embarking on a description of the political culture among ex-combatants in Liberia, the Liberian case needs to be situated somewhat and the methodology used for collecting the data needs to be described and discussed. This chapter therefore starts with an introduction to the civil war in Liberia and some of the political developments after the conflict, before continuing with a description of the data collection which mainly relied on focus group interviews.
