Witness to Truth - Volume Three B (Chapter 2: External Actors and their Impact on the Conflict)

External Actors and their Impact on the Conflict

For the purposes of analysis, the Commission has divided the Sierra Leone conflict into three phases.1 This chapter begins by examining the involvement of external actors in the pre-conflict years and the first phase of conventional "target" warfare from 1991 to late 1993. It then tracks these external actors, along with others who joined the conflict, throughout the second phase, from late 1993 up to March 1997, and the third phase, from 1997 to 2002.
