Rebuilding the war-torn cities and bringing the war-affected population back to their everyday life is a challenging process requiring a multi-faceted programme which takes into account all the obstacles. Although each case is unique in itself, studying and analysing the previous post-war reconstruction experiences can be a cornerstone in understanding the requirement of the process.
This paper addresses the post-war reconstruction experience of Qasr-e-Shirin in Iran after 8 years of war with Iraq (1980-1988). Defining ten criteria based on the other national and international experiences, as well as the reconstruction plan itself and the community’s needs, the post-war process of Qasr-e-Shirin has been assessed. Analysis of this experience confirms that a detailed assessment of pre- and post-war situation, preparing a flexible and long-term plan based on the resources and needs, documentation and monitoring, coordination and harmony between the stakeholders, community participation and empowerment, using new technologies and modern communication means are among the influential factors in yielding positive results.
