Humanizing Security in Cabo Delgado: A CSO Report on the Drivers of Conflict and its Impact on Civilians

Humanizing Security in Cabo Delgado: A CSO Report on the Drivers of Conflict and its Impact on Civilians

The instability in Mozambique's Cabo Delgado wrought by the ongoing war has been a subject of much humanitarian concern. Dominant discourses have framed the violence in terms of a 'terrorist insurgency', foregoing the inquiries into the root causes that have given rise to it. In particular, reports of violations by government security  agencies, proxies and links o Multi-National Corporations (MNCs) have remained under-studied. The purpose of this report is therefore to shed light on aspects on the political economy of this conflict as well as socio-economic threats vis-à-vis the displacement of women and children in the region.
