            Abstract

            The war in Mozambique has few similarities with any other historically known conventional war. It belongs to specific category which could be called wars of destabilisation. This has a bearing on the peace process which will exhibit various features which will distinguish it from normal patterns of ending wars. This article has two parts: the first outlines the history and the guiding military concepts of Renamo (Resistencia Nacional Mocambicana, MNR) and relates the war of destabilisation against Mozambique; the second analyses destabilisation as a specific kind of war and identifies the role of the pseudo‐guerilla MNR in this war of destabilisation.
