"This monograph tries to provide an overview of the several approaches to disarmament in Mozambique and analyse the different steps required for the implementation of the SADC Protocol—where there is complementarity, where there is duplication of efforts, what is in place and what has to be put in place. This study of Mozambique forms part of a larger research project being undertaken in several countries in Southern Africa to identify the challenges facing countries as they undertake to implement regional and international commitments on small arms. The Institute for Security Studies is supporting these research efforts, which are being coordinated by the Centre for Conflict Resolution (South Africa) and Gun-free South Africa."
