Two events dominated the development of the last three months in the Horn of Africa: Eritrea and Ethiopia signed a peace treaty and the United Nations lifted the sanctions imposed on Eritrea. Both events are to be welcomed and will promote development in the Horn of Africa.

After the new Ethiopian Prime Minister Ahmed Abiy announced in June 2018 that he would accept the ruling of the International Arbitration Court on the demarcation of borders, relations between the two countries have changed dramatically. In September, a peace treaty was signed between the two countries that puts an end to the 20 years of war.

Hans-Ulrich Stauffer sheds light on this momentous process.
