MZF dialogues is an initiative dedicated to facilitating debate and discussion on matters of public importance with special focus on the political economy of democracy and development and its salient implications for Africa’s quest to defeat dire poverty and to respect the freedom and equality of citizens.

Through this initiative we promote and organize idea-driven fora that provide opportunities for diverse participants including policymakers, civil society activists, economic leaders, and scholars to examine public issues in intellectually rigorous and free deliberation. Our work is geared towards cultivating a culture of critical reflection and open debate.
