Shary Charlotte Henriette Pattipeilohy, Hanafi Rais

Objective of the research entitled “Typology and Causes of Post Conflict Violence in Aceh (2005-2012)” is to explain the characteristics and causes of post conflict violence in Aceh. Even though the separatist violence in Aceh was ended in 2005, but violent conflict in Aceh continues to increase and is often concentrated in the pre MoU conflict area. In war situations, actions of violence have been intitutionalized and it will not be easily stopped even after the peace agreement was signed. War has also changed everything: education, informal skill, and ex combatant’s job. The lack of education and informal skills, has led to the criminal inertia actions by ex-GAM member. The lost of mutual trust between police enforcement and ex-GAM member also crates tension between both actors. The second causes is peace induced. If the war has changed the habits and behavior of the people of Aceh to the dominance of violence, the peace treaty seeks to change the behavior, attitudes and contradictions of actors involved by using Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration programs. Issues and problems began to emerge in the long term process of reintegration programs.
