The United Institute of Peace recently released this report (written by John Brinkley) outlining the use torture as a means to achieve political ends in Zimbabwe. The brief report is divided into several sections, including an introduction that outlines the use of torture in the country, which dates back to the 1970s. Other sections of the report detail the populations most affected by these policies and the perspectives of journalists who have worked in Zimbabwe. The report concludes with a section of recommendations for alleviating this situation, and includes additional references for further reading. For persons interested in the political climate of Zimbabwe and current affairs in the region, this report will be a valuable resource.
