Reflections on Zimbabwe's Past as Building Blocks for its Future

"This paper seeks to reflect on the situation in Zimbabwe through the last two decades and to conclude by suggesting some policy directions for the way forward. The reflection focuses largely on local government, land, health and education sectors. In order to map out the future of the country, it is important to revisit the last 28 years. The events described in the first section are important for framing the reflections on the country’s past and as a foundation for rebuilding Zimbabwe. The second section reflects on a possible agenda for the way forward for Zimbabwe."
