Zimbabwe: Submission for consideration by the Constitutional Parliamentary Committee recommending inclusion of economic, social and cultural rights in the Constitution

, Index number: AFR 46/022/2010

The adoption of a new Constitution provides a unique opportunity for Zimbabwe to strengthen its commitment to the protection of internationally recognized human rights in line with the commitment expressed in the Global Political Agreement, 'to act in a manner that demonstrates respect for the democratic values of justice, fairness, openness, tolerance, equality, respect of all persons and human rights'. Amnesty International Zimbabwe is urging the Constitutional Parliamentary Committee to demonstrate this commitment by guaranteeing economic, social and cultural rights in the new Constitution.
