A Database on the Mozambican Civil War

Patrick Domingues

Despite the fact that the Mozambican Civil War was one of the most violent civil war, no data is available at the intra-country level pertaining to this conflict. This paper introduces a new micro-level database and proposes a geo-temporal analysis of the evolution of this conflict. This database provides information on the province-level location, the district-level location, and the dates of 1,723 events related to this conflict. It also provides the latitude and longitude for 551 of these events. This database also classifies these collected events and provides the location of 22 rebel bases. Furthermore, this database provides the start and end dates of the conflict for each province, highlighting the differences in the duration of the conflict across the Mozambican provinces.
