Breaking Down the Ethiopian Civil War Global in the Granite State

    • Education

There is a long and complex history that helps to explain the ongoing conflict in Ethiopia today. It is a diverse country with many different ethnic groups, all of whom have competing interests. Those in power call for unity, while those without it call for respect of cultures and diffuse power structures. An understanding of the country's history is vital to an understanding of the current conflict between the Federal government and the Tigray region. It is a story of power struggles and international intervention. It is also a story of compromises made that did not satisfy the groups involved and opportunities lost to bring people in through effective power sharing. This episode features Jason Mosely, of the African Studies Centre at Oxford, who breaks down these complex issues to help you understand a conflict that could spill over throughout the Horn of Africa, destabilizing an area littered with international terrorist groups.  Donate Today
