Patrick Gilkes

Thursday 16th September 2021

Online event starting at 19:00 BST - Public lecture (all welcome to join).

Note - Register for the event on Eventbrite and you'll be emailed a Zoom link shortly before the event.

Unfortunately this event has had to be postponed.
We now hope to hold it in early 2022.

Patrick Gilkes will give his thoughts on the changeable relations between Ethiopia and Eritrea after Eritrea's independence in 1991 (de facto) and 1993 (de jure), the 1998-2000 war, Eritrean isolation, the rapprochement of 2018 as well as its results... and the future direction of relations between the two countries.

Patrick Gilkes has well over four decades of experience in Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa, as a consultant and adviser in political affairs for both government and non-governmental organizations. He worked as an advisor in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs between 2004 and 2019 writing policy papers for the Minister/State Ministers on Ethiopia's relations with Eritrea, Egypt, Sudan, Somalia and other countries. He served under five Foreign Ministers, Seyoum Mesfin, Haile Mariam Dessalegn, Dr. Tewodros Adhanom, Dr. Workneh Gebeyehu and Gedu Andargachew, during the administrations of Prime Ministers Meles Zenawi, Haile Mariam Dessalegn and Abiy Ahmed.

Please reserve your place soon to avoid disappointment.
