Abstract

This research work is a thesis for undergraduate studies in law at the Addis Ababa University. It investigates the status of Ethiopian ethnic minorities in administering their own affairs. It questions if they have lesser rights and duties than other ethnic groups.It finally forwards recommendations on what steps may be taken to address the challenges identified.

The thesis was written on the basis of the transitional period charter and a repealed legislation related to the establishment of self-governments.But it is highly relevant as the tenets of Ethiopia's federalism remain similar as a result of which most of the premises, findings and recommendations are still valid.

Keywords: minority nationality, minority, minorities, self determination, Ethiopia, deconcentration, decentralization, devolution, delegation, ethnic group, federalism, administrative law, constitution
