Southern Africa project

Racked by stolen elections, regime-inspired violence, farm invasions, economic disaster, racist political rhetoric and a complete breakdown of the rule of law, Zimbabwe continues to teeter on the brink of massive bloodshed. The country's latest presidential election in March 2002 saw President Mugabe retain his grip on power by a massive campaign of political violence and intimidation, judicial interference, and vote-rigging against the country's first credible opposition movement in twenty years. Meanwhile, the international community's response has been marked by a policy of "all bark and no bite", in which policymakers frequently criticise the flagrant violations of human rights and democracy but make empty threats, fail to use their leverage and do not take meaningful action.

ICG established a watching brief on Zimbabwe in June 2000 and has continued its project with numerous field-researched reports. ICG papers have sought to analyse the causes of Zimbabwe's crisis and to set out strategies to prevent its further escalation.
