One of the most demanding challenges in the transition from war to sustainable peace is the transformation of non state armed groups into civilian, accountable entities. Drawing on detailed research of the Micro Politics of Armed Groups Research Group at Humboldt University, the authors analyse several factors that have a direct impact on successful transition, most notably organisational structure and history. From Guerrilla War to Party Politics explores two successful, yet very different examples of successful post-war transformation of non state armed groups into political parties, the FSLN in Nicaragua and the FMLN in El Salvador.
