The Afar of Eritrea in the face of conflict

The geostrategic importance of the Afar’s traditional territory along the Red Sea has placed them in the cross-hairs of Horn of Africa politics and conflicts. With the secession of Eritrea in 1991, their situation has worsened. To explore the roots of this conflict and the Afars’ efforts to chart a different future, Gwen Schulman spoke to Ahmed Youssouf Mohamed, a Canadian of Afar origin and head of the foreign mission of the Red Sea Afar Democratic Organization; and Joseph Magnet, Professor of Law at University of Ottawa, Legal Counsel for the Afar people and Legal Counsel for the Government of Afar State in Ethiopia.
