Brief/ The EU’s Entry Point into the Post-Tigray War Context by Jesutimilehin O. Akamo & Theodros Fisseha


As the Pretoria Agreement signed in November 2022 by Ethiopia’s federal government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front nears its first anniversary, critical issues remain unresolved.

While excluded from the process that led to the agreement, the EU could now focus on these issues to reinsert itself into Ethiopia’s post-conflict stabilisation process, Jesutimilehin O. Akamo (Coordinator of the Research and Policy Analysis Unit at the Africa Peace and Security Programme, Institute for Peace and Security Studies – IPSS) and Theodros Fisseha (PhD student, IPSS) argues in a new JOINT Brief.

The EU’s support to implement programmatic action to build pro-peace perceptions and the DDR (Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration) process can prove resourceful to enhancing its relationship with Addis Ababa.
