Abstract:The current situation in Zimbabwe under the ZANU-PF government shows increasing signs of abuse of power by those in political control. Their desire to suppress criticism is also directed towards the media. This volume reflects on current events and summarizes the background to these developments. It is based on some of the contributions to an international conference entitled 'Looking to the future: social, political and cultural space in Zimbabwe', organized by the Nordic Africa Institute from May 24 to 26, 2004, in Uppsala. Contributions: Inside the 'Third Chimurenga': media repression, manipulation and hegemony in Zimbabwe: some introductory notes, by Henning Melber; From Rhodesia to Zimbabwe: change without change? Broadcasting policy reform and political control, by Dumisani Moyo; Redefining the national agenda: media and identity: challenges of building a new Zimbabwe, by Sarah Chiumbu. [ASC Leiden abstract]
