Zimbabwe is characterised by a highly fluid political context as the country is struggling to become a stable multi-party democracy free of violence and human rights abuse. Potential is there for a rapid recovery following democratic reform, but there are also forces in Zimbabwe that would rather see the current status quo maintained. Zimbabwe’s ranking as number 173 of 187 countries on the 2011 United Nations Human Development Index underlines that challenges are numerous. In spite of steady economic growth since 2009 development is far from reaching all in society.
Denmark has been actively engaged in Zimbabwe since the struggle for independence and has since the creation of the Government of National Unity in 2009 strengthened relations and increased development cooperation significantly. Thus, Denmark is again among the largest bilateral development partners to the country. Denmark strongly believes that international dialogue and reengagement with Zimbabwe is vital to bring the country forward. Through active diplomatic efforts involving the countries in the SADC region (Southern African Development Community) and the EU, Denmark works for a situation where the continuation of restrictive and appropriate measures against Zimbabwe are no longer relevant.
Danish engagement in Zimbabwe takes the point of departure in a rights based approach and aims to build democratic institutions and promote universal human rights while at the same time supporting economic inclusive growth, private sector development and improved livelihood for the ordinary Zimbabwean. In pursue of this, Denmark applies a variety of different instruments, including diplomatic dialogue, strengthened trade and business cooperation and an extensive development cooperation programme.
