Title   Zimbabwe: danger and opportunity
Author International Crisis Group
Edition PDF ed.
Published Harare/Brussels: ICG
Year 2003-03-10
Pages 38
Serial Africa report; No.60
Abstract The economic meltdown, government-created food crisis, and deepening state-sponsored violence that have plagued Zimbabwe in the year since President Robert Mugabe's ruling party rigged the presidential election continue to point in one ominous direction: potential state collapse. While the crisis deepens, the international response has become more divided. Reducing international pressure on ZANU-PF now, just when it appears that there is some prospect the political situation inside Zimbabwe is moving, would be a great mistake, one that would only lower the chance that the change will be peaceful or positive.
