This Briefing Paper analyses the extent to which ordinary Mozambicans feel the rule of law actually exists in their country.  It employs 2005 and 2008 data from the Mozambique Afrobarometer public opinion survey to understand people’s perceptions of the extent to which ordinary people are treated equally by the state, whether the state enforces the law equally against both state officials and ordinary people, and the extent to which the president ignores the constitution.
