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.
