ICG BURUNDI ------------------------- The peace process in war-ravaged
Burundi is at a critical stage. ICG has released a new report on Burundi
which charts the way forward on the three currently crucial sticking
points of political parties, political prisoners and freedom of the press. 

The report "Prisonniers politiques, liberté de la presse et partis
politiques au Burundi: les enjeux du débat" is currently available in
French only. An English translation will be published shortly

--> See http://www.crisisweb.org for the full report


Unless urgent action is taken to defuse tensions over land ownership,
achieve a working relationship with the new opposition party and rescue
the economy, Zimbabwe is headed for major public unrest, or possibly
worse, by the end of this year, according to a new report by the
International Crisis Group (ICG).  

The ICG report, entitled "Zimbabwe: At the Crossroads" urges donor
governments, the European Union, the Commonwealth and international
financial institutions to make further support to the Harare government
contingent upon action to restore the rule of law, seriously address the
country's economic crisis and end Zimbabwe's military involvement in the
Democratic Republic of Congo.  --> See http://www.crisisweb.org for the
full report
