Humanizing Security in Cabo Delgabo

The authors of this report would like to acknowledge the bravery and courage of the men, women and children who have been caught in the most heart-wrenching circumstances in Cabo Delgado. Impoverished, homeless, destitute and facing dire prospects for their futures, they have been subject to the most horrific atrocities. This report is a commitment to ensuring that their voices are heard.

This initiative would not have been possible without the invaluable participation and involvement of
civil society actors from Mozambique and the greater southern African region and internationally in solidarity with the people of Mozambique. Their solidarity instigated this initiative, and this report would not have been possible without them, in particular, the support of the Denis Hurley Peace Institute and the Open Society Initiative of Southern Africa which funded the research and writing of this report
