The Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt and Development (ZIMCODD) seeks the services of a qualified and experienced researcher with demonstrated prior capacity to carry out a study of the role of the country's financial sector, central banking and its social and economic impacts. The outputs of this study will add to the body of knowledge being generated by ZIMCODD and its partners on economic governance, financial inclusion, and evidence that the Coalition uses for its economic literacy and advocacy programmes.

Objectives of the study

  • Provide a critique of the theoretical framework of economic governance as it relates to the financial sector in Zimbabwe
  • Identify institutions in the financial sector and explain their roles
  • Unpack the concepts related to banking or the financial sector, with specific emphasis on the role of central banking from a policy and developmental perspective
  • Outline the economic history of the development of the financial sector in Zimbabwe
  • Unpack the regulatory framework governing the financial sector
  • Record community voices to capture the experiences of communities with the financial sector (2003-2009) especially views around inclusion/exclusion, popular notions of monetary policy and banking, and impact (perceived or real) of these on people's social conditions
  • Equip the poor and grassroots communities; the working classes, to engage meaningfully in discussions on the role of monetary institutions as part of an ongoing engagement on economic and public policy advocacy.
