"If Ethiopians are looking for someone to blame for their three-spot leap on this year’s list, they might justifiably look to their neighbor to the east, Somalia. Continued instability in that country has had spillover effects in Ethiopia, which in 2011 sent troops across the Somali border in an effort to stem the rising influence of the al-Shabab movement. During the most intense period of a devastating combination of drought, famine, and instability in Somalia, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimated that some 23,000 refugees were arriving each month in Ethiopia, straining resources. The drought also took its toll on the Ethiopian economy, which has experienced runaway growth in recent years but slowed slightly in 2011. While the Ethiopian government has moved to institute some reform in the agriculture sector — which employs 85 percent of workers and accounts for 41 percent of total output — those changes have been incremental at best and hardly sufficient to stand up to 2011’s record-breaking dry spell."

#Srebrenica حيوا معي نساء البوسنة- الفتاة و الجدة! SLAPOVICI, #BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - JULY 10: Enisa Begic (R), 22, looks back to her grandmother Tima Begic, who is uncertain of her age but her family says is at least 80, in Tima’s house where Enisa was born while visiting her during the inauguration day of their settlement of Slapovici’s rebuilt mosque on July 10, 2011 in Slapovici, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Enisa and her entire family fled Slapovici during the Bosnian War of 1992-1995, and she says many male members of her extended family were murdered by Bosnian Serb soldiers. Enisa, her parents and her sisters later emigrated to the United States, and today she is studying oral hygiene at university in Newport News, Virginia. Slapovici is in the Republika Srpska region of eastern Bosnia and is a valley settlement of scattered houses reachable only by a small, dirt road. During the Bosnian War the Bosnian Serb army, under the command of General Ratko Mladic, who is now on trial in The Hague for war crimes, heavily damaged the mosque, expelled all Muslims from Slapovici and murdered most of the men and teenage boys in the infamous Srebrenica massacre of 1995. Today some of Slapovici’s Muslims have returned, including Tima, though others remain scattered in a diaspora in other parts of Bosnia as well as the United States. Enisa says she and her family would like to return too but she is uncertain of finding a job in the weak Bosnia economy. Getty Images
