An assessment of South Africa’s mediatory role In Zimbabwe (2007-2013),
as well as the current state of South Africa – Zimbabwe relations and possible future developments.

31st August 2015, at the University of Cape Town (UCT)

This policy brief is based on a workshop held on August 31st 2015, which was designed to serve as a premise for SALO’s South Africa – Zimbabwe Volume II publication. Volume I focused on the layered political, historical and economic relationship between the two countries, with an emphasis on the political and economic crisis that engulfed Zimbabwe in 2000, and South Africa’s response, engagement and support up to late 2006. Volume two will cover Zimbabwe’s Government of National Unity (GNU) Phase, and the 2013 elections, as well as contemporary concerns pertaining to South Africa – Zimbabwe relations. The UCT Zimbabwe Society assisted SALO with the hosting and organisation of the event, and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) contributed immensely to the workshop.
