Challenges and Pathways for Accountability and Justice in Tigray

December 7, 2022 at 11 am EDT

Now available online:

A little over two years ago, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia launched a military offensive into the Tigray region. As a result, the situation has spiraled out of control, leading to a humanitarian catastrophe. Reports indicate that millions are facing starvation; access to medical assistance is severely hampered and not reaching civilians as outbreaks of infectious diseases tear through communities. Hundreds of thousands of people are internally displaced, and thousands of people have fled due to the conflict.

Many are calling for a robust solution to this humanitarian nightmare, particularly as allegations of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes are directed against various actors. It is questionable whether a recent peace agreement can stop the violence or if such an agreement is sustainable.
