(p.305) 9 Ethnicity and the Politics of Conflict: The Case of Matabeleland
War, Hunger, and Displacement: VOLUME 1




Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the ethnic and political conflicts in the Matabeleland region in Zimbabwe in relation to the role of conflict in complex humanitarian emergencies. This conflict, though not generally classified as a complex humanitarian emergency, provoked significant internal population displacements and refugee flows and it coincided with a severe drought. The absence of humanitarian intervention in the Matabeleland case was partly a product of the state's power to control access to information about the conflict.
