Given Ethiopia's difficult political transition, a Nobel peace prize is perhaps neither here nor there.

Prime Minister Abiy has to navigate elections in 2020, the push for self determination by various regions, a tough set of security challenges, and an economic liberalisation programme.

To help us decode all this, Patrick Smith talks to William Davison, the senior analyst, Ethiopia, for the International Crisis Group.

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today

We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.
