Violent extremism has wreaked havoc in Mozambique’s northern Cabo Delgado province. Over the past year, the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and its partners in Mozambique have conducted in-depth research on the insurgency’s root causes and possible links to organised crime.

This seminar launches the report, which reveals that the discovery and governance of natural gas and rubies are seen as a major driver of the insurgency. Little evidence was found for links with organised crime.

Simultaneous English-Portuguese translation will be available.

Moderator: Ottilia Anna Maunganidze, Head, Special Projects, ISS Pretoria

Martin Ewi, Senior Researcher and Coordinator, Southern African Organised Crime Observatory, ENACT, ISS Pretoria
