Since 2018, IFIT has accompanied an interdisciplinary group of 15 Zimbabwean thought leaders committed to helping advance the conditions for inclusive democracy and rule of law in the country. The group represents a unique national space for brainstorming and the generation of creative and realistic ideas for overcoming the problems afflicting Zimbabwe’s society, politics, and economy.

By virtue of the group’s uniquely high-level composition and inclusive methodology, it has an unusual ability to engage with diverse local and national-level leaders and youth across the country and the region. The group’s main strategic focus is on developing and promoting more realistic conditions and options for national and political dialogue, and other solutions for overcoming long-standing polarisation and deep-rooted crises that have hampered reconciliation and constitutionalism.
