Ethiopia’s Stalled Democracy:
A Spotlight on the Ogaden

Room ASP3H1
Altiero Spinelli Building, European Parliament
60 Rue Wiertz, Brussels, Belgium

Brussels, 16 November 2010 ‐ Just as the EU Election Observation Mission to Ethiopia concluded in its final report that the process of the 2010 Ethiopian elections “fell short of international commitments for
elections” and as fresh reports of insecurity emerge, there is a pressing need to assess where Ethiopia is heading and what this will mean for EU policy and the Horn of Africa.

Ms Ana Gomes MEP will convene a hearing, ‘Ethiopia’s Stalled Democracy: A Spotlight on the Ogaden’ at the European Parliament in Brussels from 16.15–18.15 on 7 December 2010 in collaboration with the
Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) and the African Rights Monitor (ARM).

Under discussion will be the political and humanitarian situation of Ethiopia’s ethnic communities, with personal testimony from the Ogaden region illustrating the current situation of human rights and
democracy, the impact of the elections and what the result will spell for peace in the coming months.

More information on the event can be found on www.unpo.org
Registration Required

Media opportunities will be available at the close of the hearing
