12/18/20 Danny Sjursen on Nagorno-Karabakh and the Ethiopian Civil War

by | Dec 23, 2020 | Interviews

Scott interviews Danny Sjursen about two prominent conflicts facing the world in 2020. In Nagorno-Karabakh, an uneasy, Russian-brokered peace deal is holding between Armenia and Azerbaijan, but Sjursen worries that this peace won’t last forever, as each country still feels that it has an unresolved claim on the disputed territory. In Ethiopia, age-old ethnic tensions have been breaking through the surface ever since the country’s government postponed elections on account of the coronavirus pandemic. The Tigrays, an ethnic minority, have long played an outsized role in the military and the government, and only in 2018 was a non-Tigray Prime Minister appointed for the first time in decades. But he has never faced popular election, and some Ethiopians fear he is trying to set himself up as an autocrat, resulting in tension all over the country, and brutal ethnic violence in some regions.
