Abstract [en]

Peace operations are considered to be hard to solve but Sierra Leone is by many thought to be a success despite major problems during the operations. Solving this conflict involved several dif-ferent actors which all contributed to the creating of peace. The purpose of this essay is to examine whether similarities between the way the conflict in Sierra Leone was solved and the method that Galula presents led to the positive outcome. This will be done by a qualitative textual analysis to demonstrate presence and absence of those parts that Galula claim are crucial to counter an insur-gency. Similarities between the method used at the solving of the conflict in Sierra Leone and Galulas method for counterinsurgency can be found. The similarities are not sufficient enough to claim that it was thanks to similarities to Galulas methods that peace was restored in Sierra Leone.

Abstract [sv]

Fredsoperationer anses av många vara svåra att lösa men i Sierra Leone lyckades man trots att man stötte på stora problem under historiens gång. Vid lösandet av denna konflikt användes ett flertal olika aktörer som alla bidrog till skapandet av fred. Syftet med denna uppsats är att under-söka huruvida likheter mellan sättet man löste konflikten på och Galulas metod för upprorsbe-kämpning ledde till den positiva utgång man hade i fallet. Detta kommer att genomföras genom en kvalitativ textanalys för att påvisa förekomster och avsaknad av de delar som Galula menar är avgörande för att stävja ett uppror. Likheter mellan metoden som man använde sig av vid lösandet av konflikten i Sierra Leone och Galulas metod för upprorsbekämpning går att finna. Likheterna är inte tillräckligt stora för att kunna påstå att det beror på likheter med Galulas arbetssätt som man lyckades uppnå fred i landet.
