What has torture-in-chief minister Debretsion Gebremichael to do with Ogaden? Is he truly Ethiopia’s security-in-chief? Is it because of that Ethiopia tails all nations in its digital development?

Editor’s Note:

    The article hereunder was published on this page on June 30,2016, at the onset and deepening of the Ethiopian protests — at the time known as the Amhara and Oromo protests.

At the risk of exposing my laziness, let me say, I should have known better since I had long been aware of his role within the TPLF since he presented his services to the Front in security and espionage area.

The Institute for Economics and Peace in its The 2016 Global Peace Index (GPI) defines peace as “the harmony achieved by the absence of violence or the fear of violence, which has been described as Negative Peace.”

In turn, Negative Peace is a term the authors of the report explain as “a compliment to Positive Peace which is defined as the attitudes, institutions and structures which create and sustain peaceful societies.” That has been the lens through which they have examined and reflected on the global problems of peace and security situation of 2015 in their 2016 report.
