The EU and USA first imposed economic sanctions against Zimbabwe in 2002. After that these sanctions have been renewed on a regular basis.

  • What was the root cause of these sanctions?
  • What is the justification given for renewing these sanctions till now?
  • Do these sanctions impinge on the sovereignty of Zimbabwe?

Apart from the camouflage of the official justifications specified in the economic sanctions declarations, what is the political/geo-strategic goal that the EU and USA want to achieve by the imposition of these sanctions?

Most of these sanctions text talk about Human Rights Violations and undermining of Democracy. What exactly are these Violations? Are there any specific examples that can be pointed or events that point to a trend?
