Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights in Zimbabwe: Options for Constitutional Protection

In this report, Zimbabawe Lawyers for Human Rights, the National Constitutional Assembly and the International Human Rights Clinic at Harvard Law School call for the new Zimbabwean Constitution to include a fully justiciable Bill of Rights with provisions protecting the rights to work, food, housing, adequate standards of health, education, and culture. The report draws on calls from civil society and the Zimbabwean public to incorporate economic, social and cultural rights into the new constitution, noting that enshrining such rights will promote a culture of accountability and responsive governance, and demonstrate Zimbabwe’s commitment to take the expressed aspirations and concerns of its citizens seriously.
