Ethiopia: A new era of culture clash
Ethiopia, a country that has been the scene of political, social and economic turmoil since its independence in 1991, is set to become a more tolerant, diverse and tolerant society in the coming years, according to a report from Newsweek.
The report, titled Ethiopia: The New Era of Culture Clash, reveals that Ethiopia is poised to become more tolerant and more diverse, with a growing number of minorities.
“Ethiopia has seen a dramatic transformation in the past few decades, and a significant cultural change has taken place over the last decade,” the report states.
“The country is on track to become the most diverse, progressive and tolerant in Africa,” the authors of the report say.
“By 2030, the country is expected to surpass the United States as the world’s most diverse country.”
The country, which has been a source of controversy for decades, has experienced a dramatic cultural shift.
While many have blamed the government for the political and economic chaos, many of the issues that have been cited as contributing to this shift have stemmed from the country’s economic and social policies.
The country’s leaders have attempted to curb the influence of religious extremism in recent years, with an emphasis on religion-based education, and in 2016 the government banned the use of foreign currency in the country.
According to Newsweek, the report also shows that a number of ethnic groups, including Christians, are gaining acceptance in the nation.
The new Ethiopian cultural environment is expected as the country has been in a state of flux since the end of the countrys military rule in 2013.
“In 2017, the economy, the political situation and the security situation became more dangerous for the majority of Ethiopians, with increased security threats from the neighbouring country of Eritrea, and the presence of Islamist groups,” the experts of Newsweek write.
“As a result, the Ethiopian people began to question the legitimacy of the political system and the countrywide institutions.”
The report further explains that the rise of an “extremist culture” in the region has been one of the main factors in the rising number of “radical” groups that are operating in Ethiopia.
The rise of these groups is also attributed to the country ‘s political system, which is based on an authoritarian, military-style system that was put in place after Ethiopia ‘s military overthrow of the democratically elected government of the nation in 2015.
While the rise in extremism has increased over the past two decades, the authors state that the current political climate in Ethiopia has made it difficult for the government to respond.
“We must take measures to contain the current extremist trend, and we need to provide the necessary security and social support to the population to ensure that their voices are heard,” the researchers state.
The news comes just two months after Ethiopia was declared a state sponsor of terrorism in an investigation by the United Nations, which led to the death of three of its citizens.
While Ethiopia’s government has attempted to portray itself as a democratic and secular country, it has long been criticized for its human rights record.
The recent spike in violence is yet another sign of how difficult things have become for the country as it attempts to maintain a balance between the military and the governing elite.
According the report, the rising rise of extremist groups is not a coincidence, and that the country faces a future that is much more challenging for it.
“It is difficult to predict the future of Ethiopia.
However, it is safe to say that this situation is more dangerous than ever, and this is one of those times when we need the international community’s support to take a stand,” the Newsweek report concludes.
“At a time when we should be seeking to restore the rule of law, Ethiopia has turned into an arena of political turmoil.
We should not be too concerned with the outcome, but instead seek to build a better future,” the article concludes.
