Ethiopia: Governance and Religion

The International Crisis Group published on 22 February 2016 a study titled "Ethiopia: Governing the Faithful." 

Ethiopian Orthodox Christians and Muslims alike have accused the government of undue interference in their internal religious affairs, while the government sees itself as holding the secular line against politicization and extremism.  The ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front has shifted from mediating conflict between faith groups to regulating religious practice, especially where there are political or extremist overtones.
