Regional responses to the insurgency in Mozambique

 

Sponsored by ISS – Institute for Security Studies

Date: 15 July 2020

Time: 15h00 - 16h30 (GMT +2)

Venue: Online via Zoom, registration required

 

In May 2020, leaders of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) committed to supporting Mozambique ‘against armed groups and terrorists’ who are wreaking havoc in Cabo Delgado province. Yet there has since been little clarity on what SADC and its member states are planning to do. Meanwhile, calls have been made for non-African intervention to prevent violent extremism spreading in Southern Africa.

 

Attacks by insurgents in northern Mozambique have so far cost the lives of over 1 000 people and displaced more than 200 000 citizens. This seminar looks at the situation from a regional perspective.

 

Chair: Liesl Louw-Vaudran, Southern Africa project leader, ISS

 

Speakers: 

•           Dr David Matsinhe, Lusophone researcher, Amnesty International

•           Prof Martin Rupiya, Innovation and Training Manager, ACCORD

•           Martin Ewi, Regional Coordinator for Southern Africa, ISS ENACT
