21 May – A United Ethiopia? Identity and autonomy in a country divided


Since the 90:s, Ethiopia is ruled through ethnic federalism, entailing a federal national government where it’s nations are defined by divides in ethnicity. Constructing communities through ethnic boundries can be seen as a way to provide regional autonomy and manage inter-ethnic tensions– but as states like the former Yugoslavia shows, it has not always been successful in this persuit.
