Abstract:Since early 2000, political violence and dramatic economic contraction have displaced people within and beyond Zimbabwe's borders on an extraordinary scale. This special issue of the Journal of Southern African Studies, which emerged from a conference entitled 'Political economies of displacement in post-2000 Zimbabwe' held in Johannesburg in 2008, explores the effects of this crisis in Zimbabwe through a regional, Southern African perspective. Following the Introduction by Amanda Hammar, JoAnn McGregor and Loren Landau, part 1 (Reshaping urban economies) contains chapters on the rise of the 'Kukiya-kiya' economy (Jeremy L. Jones); street vendors (Francis Musoni); and Zimbabwe's roadside currency trade (Showers Mawowa and Alois Matongo). Part 2 (Agrarian displacements) presents chapters on patterns and consequences of displacement in rural Zimbabwe (Bill H. Kinsey) and on agrarian displacements, replacements and resettlement among farm workers in Mazowe district (Godfrey Magaramombe). In the third part (Camaraderie and its discontents), Maxim Bolt examines class consciousness, ethnicity and divergent masculinities among Zimbabwean migrant farmworkers in South Africa, and Amanda Hammar looks at Zimbabwean commercial farmers in Mozambique. Part 4 (Precarious claims, obligations and disconnections) includes chapters on Zimbabwean migrants in Johannesburg, South Africa (Eric Worby); Zimbabwean undocumented migrants in Cape Town (Shannon Morreira); and childhoods and their displacements in eastern Zimbabwe (Ross Parsons). The last part (Encounters with reconfigured State power and practice) presents chapters on informal immigration enforcement in South Africa (Darshan Vigneswaran with Tesfalem Araia, Colin Hoag and Xolani Tshabalala) and political prisoners in post-2000 Zimbabwe (Jocelyn Alexander).
