Fragile Ethiopia!

The state of peace has worsened in Ethiopia today more than any other country

What is the price of peace in Ethiopia? Will Ethiopia go the way of peace through atonement and reconciliation or take the path of civil war and bloodshed?

BY HABEN TEKLE

Following a spasm of violence, Ethiopia faces a critical choice between endemic instability and slow but steady progress toward political reform. The most sensible way forward is to launch a new, genuine dialogue with political opposition parties, in which they are unfairly represented.

In order to create an environment in which such talks could succeed, the regime should take immediate steps to address the human rights crisis, including by releasing political leaders jailed for peacefully expressing their views, and reverse the alarming sectarian polarization that has occurred.
