Constitutional design options for Ethiopia: Managing ethnic divisions
Proposals for managing diversity are analysed along with options and lessons from other parts of the world.
21 SEP 2020 / BY SEMIR YUSUF
Ethiopia’s contending political forces have suggested diverse and contradictory policies to manage ethnic division in the country. Reconciling these interests requires understanding the various debates and examining all possible options to manage diversity as recommended and practised elsewhere in the world. These options also need to be innovatively combined so that the core needs and interests of the various political forces and ethnic communities can be incorporated into the new institutional design.
