Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorDenise Esteves
IDEX invites you to the second International Development Series (IDS) panel of 2005.

With the date for elections just announced for March 31st, we bring together a panel to discuss current political, social, health and economic conditions in Zimbabwe. The outlook for free and fair elections "appears bleak," as major news outlets are terming it, and there are already widespread reports of voters purged from the rolls. HIV/AIDS rates remain astronomical. And the economy is plagued by high unemployment levels, poverty and the highest inflation rate in the world.

Given these challenges, how can NGOs and supporters here continue to assist in efforts to effect social change? What are the constraints, risks and realities for ongoing human rights work? And how do we keep the U.S. public engaged – intellectually, politically, and financially – in supporting Zimbabweans’ struggles for democracy given these realities and risks? Come join us for this engaging panel discussion on the present and future of Zimbabwe.

Panelists:
David Katzenstein MD, Professor of Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine, Stanford University
Muadi Mukenge, Program Officer for Africa, the Global Fund for Women
Chris Paterson, Assistant Professor of Media Studies, University of San Francisco
Pete Stanga, Executive Director, IDEX
Moderated by Sarah Dotlich, Africa Program Director, IDEX
