Challenges Facing Ethiopian Peace Agreement

The International Peace Institute's Global Observatory published on 7 February 2023 an analysis titled "After Agreement in Ethiopia's Tigray Region, What Stands in the Way of Lasting Peace?" by Hilary Matfes and Anne Lauder, University of Denver. 

The authors suggest there is much that stands in the way of lasting peace in the region, including a multitude of armed actors, the continuing presence of Eritrean forces, divisions within the TPLF, accountability for atrocities, rising tension in Oromia, and the need to deal with a severe drought in parts of Ethiopia.
