Venue: 
African Studies Centre Seminar Room

This seminar seeks to explain the competing and sometimes conflicting aspirations of the Ethiopian State, and its outcome as it has been displayed in the recent popular protests and demands. It further takes stock of the ongoing political experiences in the country with a goal to predict plausible and rational political paths the country needs in its democratic bids.
