Dr Roy Love
Email address:


Dr Love is currently an independent researcher and consultant with long-term interest in Ethiopia and Eritrea. He previously lectured in economics at universities of Botswana, Lesotho and Addis Ababa.
He is conducting a research on the "Economic roots of conflict in the Horn of Africa", for a book which will bring together the interconnectedness of the economic roots of conflict across the Horn, examining how the nature of conflict in the region in the 21st century has been shaped by overlapping domestic and international economic drivers at certain key periods between the late 19th century and the present, with continuing implications for the resolution of contemporary conflict and its amelioration and prevention.
