Wars continue in many parts of the world and most of them are often lengthy and extends for more than a decade. Wars often cause huge impacts. It is widely acknowledged that wars exist in many developing countries. As conflicts have a greater impact on the built environment of a country, post\ud conflict reconstruction requires repair and reconstruction of housing, social and economic infrastructure of conflict affected countries. Housing reconstruction after war plays an important role in establishing the country’s development and peace. But it is claimed that most of housing projects\ud are not appropriate for the beneficiaries’ needs and socio-economic conditions. Therefore, this research study will focus on how to integrate beneficiaries’ socio-economic conditions and housing needs into post conflict housing reconstruction. Research methodology includes a comprehensive literature review, semi structured interviews with beneficiaries, experts, policy makers and practitioners. As this study enhances post conflict housing reconstruction through integrating users’ housing needs and their socio-economic conditions it contributes to sustainable development.\ud However sustainability perspectives of post conflict human settlements are much broader and involve security, return and reintegration of displaced population, economic development, good governance and sustainable urbanisation
