The Social Problematics of Refugee Return
This chapter examines how the transformation of social relations in Machaze, Mozambique during the war informed projects of postconflict return. It describes how the war-time development of transnational polygyny transformed the life strategies of Machazians in ways that placed them at odds with the international community's understanding of what repatriation should entail. This chapter argues that Machazian men sought to pursue new transnational life strategies that presumed continued social connections and investment in both Mozambique and South Africa.
