2016 Protests in Ethiopia

The Rift Valley Forum published in November 2016 a summary report titled "A Year of Protests in Ethiopia."

The report emphasized that grievances specific to the Oromo and Amhara people and regions converged into a youthful protest movement, which had no clear political agenda or leadership. A reshuffled inclusive and technocratic cabinet brought some political breathing space for the government but did not address the underlying issues driving the protests.
