The Commitment of the German Democratic Republic in Ethiopia

A study based on Ethiopian sources

By Haile Gabriel Dagne

The study presents the general political conditions and details of the extensive commitment of the German Democratic Republic in Ethiopia during 1976 through 1990, thus examining Ethiopia's drive towards the East. Regarding the researching of Ethiopian sources it should be kept in mind that sources, especially concerning military and security issues in general are not available to the broad public. On the one hand the study examines the GDR's exertion of influence in the areas of politics, ideology, military, and domestic security. On the other hand the study also focuses on both countries' endeavours towards the shaping of the developmental cooperation and the implementation of agricultural, industrial, geological, mining, transportation, communication, commerce, culture, education and health projects.
