Mozambique: A People's Peace

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Only seven years ago Mozambique was the poorest country on earth, devastated by a civil war that claimed an estimated one million lives and displaced
some five million people. In that war the basic infrastructure of the country - its communications, commerce and health facilities - were destroyed.
The economic cost has been estimated at US$15 billion. Today, its second democratic election held peacefully in December, Mozambique is seen as one
of Africa's success stories with a growing economy, stability and political tolerance.
