Summary Äthiopien gilt als "Tiger-Staat Afrikas" (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 6./7.12.2014). Die Entwicklung von Addis Abeba mit ihren Chancen und Problemen ist typisch für die von sogenannten "emerging territories" und wird in dieser Publikation beispielhaft analysiert. Ziel ist, vorhandene Kompetenzen und Resourcen zu nutzen, um Fehler einer aufgepfropften Architektur und Stadtplanung nach westlichem Muster zu vermeiden.
