Beyond the crisis in Zimbabwe: Sorting out the land question
The depth of political and economic despair in Zimbabwe is beyond dispute. This paper situates the unfortunate picture in its historical context - drawing particular attention to the role of land in setting the country on its tragic trajectory, and showing how land remains the most fundamental problem precluding the restoration of political coherence and economic recovery. It argues that political and economic stability will be elusive until there is definitive closure to Zimbabwe's unpleasant past and at the same time clarity about property rights. It offers in addition some necessary first steps for the day when a new government is finally able to address and rectify the current chaos.
