Can reform turn Zimbabwe around?
Date: 14 September 2016
Time: 14h00 - 16h00
Venue: Conference room, ISS Pretoria, Block C, Brooklyn Court, map

Zimbabwe is once again facing major political and economic challenges. There has been a significant rise in public protests against unpopular economic measures imposed by an increasingly desperate government. The government has responded with heavy security crackdowns and attempts at banning public protests.

A new ISS report argues that prospects for economic reform and recovery under the leadership of President Robert Mugabe and his chief lieutenants in the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front look bleak. Splits within the ruling party over Mugabe’s successor contribute to instability.

Can things be turned around?
