From a war-torn and famine-plagued country at the beginning of the 1990s, Ethiopia is today emerging as one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa. Growth in Ethiopia has surpassed that of every other sub-Saharan country over the past decade and is forecast by the International Monetary Fund to exceed 8 percent over the next two years. The government has set its eyes on transforming the country into a middle-income country by 2025, and into a leading manufacturing hub in Africa.

The Oxford Handbook focuses on structural transformation to understand Ethiopia's unique model of development. From both academic and professional standpoints, this volume is a key reference work on the economy of Ethiopia and how the lessons learned can be applied to Africa more broadly.

The event is organised by the SOAS Department of Politics and International Studies and the Royal African Society. Join them for the book launch and discussion with some of the key authors.
