Description

Nearly 30 years after the end of its 17-year civil war, Ethiopia is steps away from slipping into another disastrous conflict that could wipe out the gains of the past three decades. The escalating military confrontation between Ethiopia’s federal government and political leaders in the Tigray region has produced a grave humanitarian situation unfolding against a backdrop of complex ethnic and power dynamics, which could destabilize the country of 110 million. Likewise, the growing hostility in Ethiopia could ensnarl the wider region and have vast repercussions for the stability across the Horn of Africa — including in Somalia and in Eritrea, which is already entangled in the conflict.

On Tuesday, November 24, the Africa Security Initiative and the Initiative on Nonstate Armed Actors at Brookings will host a discussion on these developments, their implications, and options to contain the conflict. Questions from the audience will follow the discussion.

Panellists:

  • Vanda Felbab-Brown (Moderator)
  • Zach Vertin
  • Jeffrey Feltman
  • Murithi Mutiga
  • Payton Knopf

Viewers can submit questions via email to events@brookings.edu or on Twitter using #AfricaSecurity.
