CrisisWatch Digest Ethiopia

The CrisisWatch Digest Ethiopia offers a monthly one-page snapshot of conflict-related country trends in a clear, accessible format, using a map of the region to pinpoint developments.

CrisisWatch Digest - October

What happened? Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, sworn in on 4 October after his election win, launched a federal offensive in the north. When that sputtered, Tigray forces advanced in eastern Amhara. Clashes between insurgents and government forces spiked in Oromia.

Why does it matter? Ethiopia’s year-old war has entered a dangerous new phase. Fighting could intensify as Tigray forces advance south and threaten the capital, Addis Ababa. There is potential for thousands more deaths and greater instability countrywide, which could extend beyond Ethiopia’s borders.
