An expert in international law, Associate Professor Mohamed Helal recently authored an op-ed on titled, “Ethiopia’s Power Play on the Nile Has Left the Region in a Deadlock.”

“The AU, the EU, and the United States should prod the parties to exercise flexibility and encourage Ethiopia to conclude a legally binding agreement that enables the country to achieve a return on its investment in the GERD while protecting downstream communities,” he wrote. “Such an agreement would build trust and confidence, thus laying the foundations for broader cooperation on future development projects in the Nile Basin.”
