Ethiopia’s Reform: The Free Media in a Budding Democracy

A year after PM Abiy Ahmed’s new appointment announced the start of the ongoing reforms in Ethiopia, USAGM’s Office of Policy and Research hosted a discussion among experts on the state of Ethiopia’s political landscape, the role and importance of independent media, and the challenges facing an ethnically diverse country as it prepares for multi-party elections in 2020.

The event featured exclusive data from a new survey on trends in Ethiopian public opinion and media engagement.
