The study focuses on the implementation of the prisoners’ right to remunerated labour in Mozambique. It takes on a human rights-based approach to prisoners’ rights, arguing for the provision of remunerated labour as a measure to enhance a fundamental right to work to the most vulnerable members of the society who are prisoners. Within this broad rubric, the following questions are investigated: (1) What are the domestic, regional and international standards in respect of remunerated labour applicable to prisoners? (2) Has Mozambique complied with the duties arising from these obligations?
(3) How can the enforcement of these undertakings be ensured?
