Under the auspices of the Afrobarometer, IfESOR conducted a nation-wide survey of political opinions and attitudes in Malawi between 15th June and 3rd July, 2005.  A nationally representative sample of 1200 respondents drawn from all the districts in the country was interviewed.  In this paper, we use Afrobarometer data to investigate the nature of political participation among Malawians.
