Why Abiy Ahmed Earned the Nobel Peace Prize, Several Times Over

Now seems like a good time to repost my article from last month on UnHerd.com, in which I discussed Dr, Abiy Ahmed’s amazing accomplishments during his initial year as Prime Minister of Ethiopia – pacifying crippling protests from the country’s two largest ethnic groups, brokering a peace deal to end the bloody stalemate with neighboring Eritrea, and ending a decades-long schism within the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.  I also look at the even more challenging road ahead as Abiy seeks to unify the deeply divided country and introduce true democracy for the first time in Ethiopian history.

Who is Abiy Ahmed?
