May 2 – Beyond Growth: democratic developmentalism in Ethiopia

Ethiopia’s economic growth is a result of a development-oriented ruling coalition, the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) maintaining the ‘development projects’ hegemony’. Determined to establish a democratic-developmentalist state, the EPRDF gives preeminence to an autonomous policy space enabling experimentation with different economic policies. Focusing on the growing dominance of China as Ethiopia’s preeminent investor, lender and trading partner, the lecture explores how Ethiopia’s development hegemony and aspiration for establishing a democratic developmental state are being put to the test.
