This paper takes an in-depth look at the politics and economy of Zimbabwe under Robert Mugabe. The author discusses the nation in context with its relationship with other countries, and as part of the global economy. The paper focuses on Zimbabwe through three perspectives: Realism, Liberalism, and Structuralism.

From the paper:

"Global Political Economy is surely one of the most crucially important social sciences of the modern era. It has been argued that there is virtually no aspect of our daily lives which is not circumscribed by this field of study 1) the evidence abounds of how political decisions affect economic policies and vice versa. Just as the results of a macro-economic programme can affect the future of a political party, the profits of a Multi-National Corporation are affected by the ideology of the political elite in a nation. Moreover the modern world order is characterized by a level of interdependence that is unparalleled. States and economies are affected by events which are thousands of kilometers geographically removed from their own location. In light of the focal way in which our lives are affected by the GPE, it is a meritorious undertaking to examine the critical situation in Zimbabwe within the framework of the discipline."
