Zimbabwe/ 3. Competence, decision-making and administration  

3.3 Inter-ministerial or intergovernmental co-operation

Inter-ministerial cooperation in Zimbabwe is largely absent as there is no official platform to coordinate cooperation of various ministries and government departments that are in charge of arts and culture. Cooperation does happen in some instances but it can best be described as ad hoc collaboration. For instance sometimes the Board of Censors which was instituted in 1967 under the Censorship and Entertainment Control Act Chapter 10:04 and operate from within the Ministry of Home Affairs with a mandate of censoring the works produced by artists sometimes does collaborate with the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe in executing its duties.
