East Africa plays a key role in U.S. foreign policy, however it is a region often threatened by the chronic instability of periodic conflict, as recently seen in Ethiopia’s ongoing Tigray crisis. Insular conflicts can spillover, thus threatening to destabilize the region and pose a humanitarian crisis for millions. How is U.S. policy dealing with these challenges to its interests? Does the U.S. have a clearly defined strategy for the ongoing conflict in Ethiopia and its implications for the region? How can the Biden administration and other international actors work together effectively minimize regional instability? Join the NCAFP and three distinguished experts for a candid discussion of these questions and more.

The event will be conducted via the video conferencing platform Zoom, which works on PC, Mac, or mobile devices. You do not need to create an account to use it. Guests will have the option to join the meeting through the Zoom application, or by calling in by phone.
