In 1992, more than a decade of devastating civil war in Mozambique ended with a peace accord between the government and rebel forces. That constituted a major achievement. Yet in itself it did not lead to reconciliation between former enemies. Alfiado Zunguza, of Mozambique, points to the eventual realization among his people that reconciliation and conflict transformation are not single events but long-term processes. Moreover, those processes require the participation of all people from all levels of society. With this in mind, Zunguza sketches specific needs for conflict transformation in Mozambique with respect to crime, labor unrest, ethnic relations, and more.
