The Sudan-Ethiopia Border Dispute

 The International Crisis Group (ICG) published on 24 June 2021 an analysis titled "Containing the Volatile Sudan-Ethiopia Border Dispute."

Ethiopia and Sudan are locked in a dangerous military standoff over a piece of fertile borderland farmed by Ethiopian farmers but claimed by Sudan.  External partners should urge the two countries to find a land-use compromise similar to an earlier soft border arrangement without linking the issue to other contentious issues.
