Abstract:This article examines the ways in which the Portuguese colonial authorities imposed forced labour on the inhabitants of colonial Mozambique. The author investigates the practices in the Mozambican provinces of Manica and Sofala, where between 1942 and 1961 a decree obliged every African male to perform six months of wage labour per year. This decree created a category of men who volunteered for work, but at the same time defined themselves as forced labourers. Notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
