Mozambique Post-War Socio-Economic and Political Challenges

“This paper critically analyses the socio-economic and political challenges facing Mozambique against the backdrop of unprecedented popular uprisings in North
Africa, themselves inspired by socio-economic stresses. Many observers are wondering whether there is a potential
for contagion into sub-Saharan Africa of this North African wind of popular demands for change. To this end, the paper examines the roles of Mozambique’s main political
players, the dynamics in the political arena, and the socioeconomic and political challenges faced by the country. Mozambique’s recent history is also briefly examined to put the analysis of current events and processes into a historical context.”
