Annual Constitutional Reporter of the Year Award Ceremony – 30 June 2021

The Centre for Applied Legal Research, together with the Southern African Research and Documentation Centre (SARDC) and the Media Institute of Southern Africa Zimbabwe (MISA) are implementing a project titled “Promoting Citizen Participation in Constitutional Discourse in Zimbabwe” funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).

The project aims to address threats to constitutionalism, and the lack of citizen participation on constitutional matters in Zimbabwe, through strengthening the role of the media in constitutional reporting. This has been done through, amongst other things, the training of 160 journalists on the constitution and constitutional reporting. As a way of recognizing the results of the training, the project will hold its first Annual Constitutional Reporter of the Year Award ceremony on the 30th of June 2021, the ceremony will be held virtually via Zoom.
