Exploring Economic Reintegration in Namibia

Individual Trajectories of PLAN Ex-Fighters and SWAPO Exiles, 1989–2018

by Tichaona Mazarire

This study draws from life histories to present constraints and possibilities that have shaped former SWAPO exiles’ economic reintegration in post-colonial Namibia from 1989 through 2018. The book advances three arguments pushing beyond existing scholarship on Namibia and/or economic reintegration broadly. These arguments challenge dominant narratives that have generalized former SWAPO exiles’ economic reintegration experiences, highlighting that there is no single narrative that can describe their unique life stories of reintegration in the post-colony.
