21. 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.
