Abstract

Abiy Ahmed’s political agenda of strength via unity calls for an expansion of federal authority over regionalisation, which has antagonised Ethiopia’s struggles over national identity. The war in Tigray further inflames these debates alongside the country’s ethnic tensions, writes Nima Khorrami, and does nothing to weaken the TPLF’s support in the region. What does this mean for Ethiopia as a state and how the current crisis might be resolved?
