Beyond The Crises: Zimbabwe’s Prospects for Transformation

 BEYOND THE CRISES: ZIMBABWE'S PROSPECTS FOR TRANSFORMATION

This is the title of a book TrustAfrica will launch officially on February 11th in Harare, Zimbabwe. The book is a gem that seeks to tackle policy alternatives the Southern African nation could have pursued to avoid the quagmire that has entangled it today.

Over the past years, few African countries have been the focus of discussions and analyses generating a vast array of literature as much as Zimbabwe. The socioeconomic and political crises since the turn of the century have deeply transformed the country from the ideals of a vibrant freshly independent nation just two decades earlier. These transformations have necessitated the call for the restructuring of Zimbabwean society, polity, and economy. But this literature remains exclusively within the realm of academic thinking and theorising, with no concerted effort to move beyond this by explicitly drawing out the policy implications.

Beyond the Crises: Zimbabwe’s Prospects for Transformation is a welcome addition to the academic and policy literature with a much broader and all-embracing focus in terms of policy interventions. By focusing on different aspects of social and economic justice, Murisa and Chikweche go beyond initiating a broad discussion on these two key pillars of human development with a view to suggesting possible future directions of practical solutions and policy development for the attainment of inclusive social and economic justice for Zimbabweans.
