Stategies of Social Research in Mozambique
As a research and research-training institute, the Centre of African Studies is only one single focus of social research in Mozambique. Within Eduardo Mondlane University, at specialised research institutes, and especially within the research divisions of the various government Ministries, Mozambicans are engaged in expanding the concrete knowledge of Mozambican conditions so necessary for the tasks of transition today, and so neglected by colonial intellectuals. Yet as limited and specific as the experience of the Centre of African Studies is, the history of its development, its ongoing work, and its organisation, express much of what is central and significant to the strategy of social research in Mozambique.
