Ethiopia after Meles

Meles Zenawi overthrew a dictator and became a darling of Western donors. But in the name of fighting Islamists in neighbouring Somalia, is the West too quick to look the other way when it comes to radical land reform, a crackdown on minorities and suppression of free speech?

  • Alexis MASCIARELLI. International Affairs Desk, France 24;
  • Frehiwot TSIGUE SHIFERAW. Former BBC correspondent in Ethiopia (from New York);
  • Ahmed MOEN. Associate Professor, Howard University (from Washington).

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel and Christopher Davis.
