226. Academic Freedom in Ethiopia
Editor: Taye Assefa
This book examines the status of institutional autonomy, academic freedom and teaching personnel in Ethiopian higher education institutions, with emphasis on the post-Derg period. It provides the results of case studies of seven major public universities and four private colleges using the UNESCO General Conference’s November 1997 “Recommendation concerning the status of higher education teaching personnel” as a benchmark. It also presents three other studies focusing on crosscutting issues such as teacher assessment, social dialogue and TESO, and impacts of massification.
227. Digest of Ethiopia's National Policies, Strategies and Programs
2008, Reprinted: 2009, 2010
Editor: Taye Assefa
This digest briefly reviews a selection of major national policies, strategies and programs adopted by the Government of Ethiopia in the post-1991 period. It provides reviews of the salient features and contents of the policies, strategies and programs, achievements and challenges in their implementation and the way forward. The reviews cover the Social sector (e.g., food security, population, education, women), Economic sector (agriculture, finance, energy, industry, trade and investment, water, environment), and Governance sector (civil service, justice system, and urban development).
228. Ethiopia: The Challenge of Democracy from Below
Editor: Bahru Zewde and Siegfried Pausewang, eds.
The book deals with the challenges of grassroots empowerment and power relations in the unraveling of the political processes in the post 1991 Ethiopia. Topics analysed in the research papers include traditional institutions of self governance, decentralization and local government, resource management and control, gender equality, the status of the newly emerging civil society and press freedom. A recurrent argument in the analyses is that the success of the democratization process in Ethiopia depends on the degree to which the state acknowledges and accommodates the aspirations of the people to shape their own lives and choose their destiny.
