    This study analyses the Mozambican higher education policy developments between 1993 and 2003. To explain these developments the Advocacy Coalition Framework (ACF) developed by Sabatier and Jenkins-Smiths (1986) is used. The unique context in which the Mozambican higher education sector developed challenges the ACF¿s assumptions and expectations. The framework, like most other established public policy theories or frameworks, was developed in a western industrialised context. A key question answered in this study is whether the ACF may be profitably applied to the volatile context in which Mozambican higher education evolved.
