I have rued the lack of engagement of DC Africa watchers with the upcoming elections in Zimbabwe.

However, a range of organizations are co-sponsoring a day long event on Zimbabwean governance in general on July 23.  It is refreshing to see that developments in Zimbabwe have not completely escaped the watching eye of the National Endowment for Democracy, the Center for International Private Enterprise, Freedom House, the International Republican Institute, the Solidarity Center, and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights.

The agenda, which has a heavy participation of Zimbabwean activists (Jenni Williams, Irene Petras, and others), can be found here.
