Federalism and the Protection of Human Rights in Ethiopia

Edited by: Eva Brems, Christophe Van der Beken

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.
