“I am black”

The BZS was formed in 1981 in response to Zimbabwe’s independence the year before, and in the belief that a new relationship was needed between the peoples of the two countries. It

  • is a network of friends of Zimbabwe
  • supports people-to-people links
  • informs and educates
  • promotes understanding and respect
  • encourages open discussion and debate

The BZS is committed to relationships based on reciprocity and fairness and to bridging the South-North gap in wealth and power.

The Society has established a panel of academic experts on Zimbabwe who between them have been able to assess hundreds of asylum appeals.
