Ethiopia, Eritrea, and the Conflict in Tigray With H. E. Brita Wagener

The conflict in Tigray, the northernmost region in Ethiopia and just south of Eritrea, grows increasingly worrisome, yet very little concrete information about the events has been available. This is largely a product of Ethiopia’s media blackout in the region, which has left the outside world with little insight into the growing humanitarian crisis.

H. E. Brita Wagener, former German ambassador to Ethiopia and the African Union (2017–2020), discusses the crisis in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, its complicated political and ethnic history, and efforts by the international community to learn more and to resolve the conflict. In conversation with Graduate Center Professor John Torpey, director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies.
