This is the developing word press site for the Britain Zimbabwe Society. The Britain Zimbabwe Society (BZS) was established after Zimbabwe’s Independence in 1980 to share information, promote friendship and facilitate networking between the two countries.
In addition BZS organises a BZS Research Day annually in June, to highlight research by academics on Zimbabwe both in that country and in the Diaspora. A Review with details of newly published books, economic reviews and articles of general interest, is published three times a year. Membership of the organisation provides access to BZS Information which promotes news and debate on the current situation in Zimbabwe and events linked to Zimbabwe. For further details on joining the BZS please consult the information on membership provided elsewhere on this site.
