After a period of heavy repression of human rights defenders, Ethiopian authorities allowed more freedom to them in recent years. Legal frameworks developed positively. However, in practice the newly gained freedom is fragile and civic space is curtailed. Repressive actions still threaten the safety and security of journalists and others defending or using their rights to freely express themselves, to assemble or to associate. In particular in conflict situations, widely spread in the country, human rights defenders and activists are at risk of violent actions, both from government agencies and from various political, ethnic armed groups. Violence includes arbitrary arrests and detention, enforced disappearances, rape and other sexual and gender-based violence.
