Abstract

Using a new database on the Mozambican Civil War, this paper utilises the heterogeneity of the duration of conflict across the Mozambican provinces to assess its impact on school enrolment. The results indicate that only conflict exposure during the first seven years of life reduced the probability of school enrolment; no effect was found for exposure after this age or for in-utero exposure. Furthermore, the results show that this negative effect is specific to girls and that these results are linked with choices made by households during the war period.
