The recent hostilities between Ethiopia and its northern Tigray region have escalated into a full-scale humanitarian crisis. With forces from neighboring Eritrea now involved in the conflict, there is a growing number of massacres reported in the Tigray region, both of Tigray people and Eritrean migrants. The worsening conflict has also affected the agricultural sector in Tigray, putting many at risk for starvation and in need of humanitarian aid. With access to information limited, the United Nations and the United States have called for de-escalation and removal of troops from the region. How will Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed respond to this request from the U.N. Security Council? What is the likelihood that the crisis worsens? To make sense of this complicated and volatile situation, we welcome former U.S. Ambassadors to Ethiopia Vikki Huddleson, David Shinn, and Rea Brazeal. The discussion will be moderated by FPRI Trustee and Chair of FPRI’s Africa Program, Ambassador Charles A. Ray.
