This book brings together articles by Western and Ethiopian jurists and
political scientists that are all based on original and recent research.
The link between federalism and human rights in Ethiopia is the central
theme of the book and acts as the context against which the different
articles must be situated. The book consists of two parts. The first part
contains contributions that study aspects of Ethiopian federalism from a
constitutional and public international law perspective. The contributions
of the second part aim to provide a better insight in a number of current
human rights issues in Ethiopia such as the right to self-determination,
land rights, press freedom and gender equality.
