Abstract:

Interstate wars are not one of the most salient features of current World Politics. Indeed, the prevailing patterns of post- Cold War Conflict reveal an increasing trend in intrastate wars that spill over borders. This paper aims to provide insights from an inter-state war in the post-Cold War era and hence contribute to the ongoing debate on the changing nature of warfare. The case-study provides evidence to contradict the strand of the literature which claims that we are witnessing a decisive transformation of warfare (Van Creveld 1991); (Kaldor 1999). Beyond the continuities with the 30 years civil war, namely in the relations between the Tigray People?s Liberation Front(TPLF) and the Eritrean People?s Liberation Front (EPLF), the 1998-2000 war was waged between the armed forces of two sovereign states. The paper highlights the value- added of the case- study to the debates on the transformation of warfare, on the patterns of warfare in Africa and on the dynamics of state formation in the South. This is one of the few cases of inter-state war in Africa. is a crucial contribution to comparative perspectives on the causation of intra-state (civil) wars and interstate wars in Africa and in other regions in the South. The central claim of this paper is that neighbours do fight over territory. Indeed, the paper will argue that territory is central to understand the causes, the conduct and the outcomes of the 1998- 2000 interstate war. The inability of either state to accept any territorial changes reveals that territory is central for the definition of the sovereign state.
