Allies weekly discussion: The Future of Ethiopia

Date & Time December 2, 2020 8:00pm - 9:00pm

In early November, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia ordered a military offensive against the government of Tigray, a region of Ethiopia ruled by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). Ethiopia has since plunged into a civil war, leading to extreme violence in the Tigray region between TPLF forces and Ethiopian National Defense Forces (ENDF). Join ALLIES this Wednesday at 8pm as we discuss the motivations behind the Tigray conflict and what it means for the future of Ethiopia and other countries in the Horn of Africa. As usual, no prior knowledge is required and background readings will be provided at the event.
