Considering an agenda for security sector reform in Zimbabwe.
Over the past ten years, the Zimbabwean security sector has increasingly come into the spotlight for being unduly politicised and non-partisan, and for infringing on the human rights of citizens. The formation of the new inclusive government in 2009 provided an opportunity to consider fundamental reforms in the provision of security and justice services to the people of Zimbabwe. This paper considers the need for security sector reform (SSR) in Zimbabwe and highlights potential short-term and long-term priorities in this regard.

The promotion of security is no longer a state monopoly. It is dispersed and takes place through the practices of states, corporations, non-governmental actors and community-based organizations. But what do we know about the ways in which 'security' is thought about and promoted in this pluralized field of delivery? Are democratic values being advanced and protected, or threatened and compromised? Wood and Dupont bring together a team of renowned scholars to shed light on our understanding of the arrangements for contemporary security governance. Offering a 'friendly dialogue' between those who argue that democratic transformation rests in the development of strong state institutions and those who propose a more de-centered agenda, the scholars in this volume bring cutting-edge theoretical analyses to bear on empirical examples. This volume will appeal to researchers in the fields of criminology, political science, sociology and security studies. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
