Abstract:The defeat of ZANU-PF in the 2008 parliamentary election marked the end of one-party rule in Zimbabwe. The Global Political Agreement (GPA) signed later that year resulted in a Government of National Unity. This volume analyses the conditions which gave rise to the GPA, the factors influencing the mediation and the politics that has unfolded under the agreement. It examines contestations at the national level within the broader dynamics of regional and international interventions. Contributions: An overview of the GPA: national conflict, regional agony and international dilemma (Brian Raftopoulos); The opposition dilemma in Zimbabwe: a critical review of the politics of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) parties under the GPA transitional framework 2009-2012 (James Muzondidya); ZANU-PF and the Government of National Unity (Gerald Mazarire); Responses of civil society to the inclusive government: the challenges of turning confrontation into engagement (Bertha Chiroro); Politics behind politics: African Union, SADC and the GPA in Zimbabwe (Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni); Sanctioning the Government of National Unity: a review of Zimbabwe's relations with the West in the framework of the GPA (Munyaradzi Nyakudya); Repairing a fractured nation: challenges and opportunities in post-GPA Zimbabwe (Shari Eppel).
