Ethiopia - On The Brink Of Civil War?

While the eyes of the world were fixed on the US presidential elections, Ethiopia has descended into armed conflict, centred around its northern province of Tigray. Nearly 1 million people are believed to have been displaced from their homes into neighbouring South Sudan and Eritrea, with no end in sight. To find out more about this burgeoning humanitarian crisis, in a region that is one of the major arteries of global trade, we speak to Samuel Makinda, Professor of International Relations and Security Studies at Murdoch University.
