I really admired Helen Epstein for her effort and commitment to show the true face of repressive regime in Ethiopia. This fact clearly analyzed by Human Rights Watch Report: “One Hundred Ways of Putting Pressure”. Rather than encouraging the regime to widen up the political space in Ethiopia, what the World Bank and Others foreign actors doing is helping the ruling class to repress the people. For donors and EPRDF, if they can bring “development” in Ethiopia that is more than enough for the people. For some of the employees in the donor community, it is a matter of job security. Any government should be engaged in development activities and improve the livelihood of their citizen. However, this effort can only be sustainable in democratic country, at least in the case of Ethiopia.
