Though mostly barren Djibouti benefits from it’s location at the entrance to the Red Sea and between Ethiopia and the Sea. The State emerged from a civil war in the 1990s and multi-party elections were instituted, though President Guelleh has retained power since 1999. Djibouti has been widely criticised for its hostility to the media, which is largely controlled by the government, and the most extreme forms of female genital mutilation, as well as other such harmful practices, are widespread and seen as socially acceptable.
