This thesis focuses on the construction of knowledge in the education system in postcolonial Mozambique over three generations of students and how this has impacted on their personal and social identity. The students have a schooling journey from primary education until university in post-colonial Mozambique, a former Portuguese colony that achieved independence in 1975. Each generation is linked to a specific political and ideological period in Mozambique (i.e. 1st generation and Marxism-Leninism or Socialism; 2nd generation and Democracy; and 3rd generation and Global Capitalism or Neo-Liberalism) sharing common experiences and a social memory about the Civil War (1976-1992). Three generations of students in post-colonial societies is underresearched.
