Zimbabwe is a landlocked Southern African country, bordering South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique. President Robert Mugabe has reigned for more than three decades, at times engaging in blatant electoral fraud and authoritarian tactics against opponents, but recent elections have attracted more international scrutiny and some concessions have been made under pressure of Western sanctions. Targeting of human rights defenders and political activists, along with political violence more generally, are severe problems in Zimbabwe, as is the widespread use of child labour and recruitment of children into military and paramilitary units.
