Beschreibung

Historically, Ethiopia's tradition of hospitality and care for refugees dates as far back as the first half of the 2nd century B.C when Jews settled in northern Ethiopia. Prophet Mohammed also dispatched the first Muslim Hegira fearing of persecution. In the 1920s and 1930s Ethiopia welcomed Armenian Christians that fled Bolshevik rule and later in the 1950s and 1960s, African freedom fighters seeking asylum. The recent history of refugees in Ethiopia is a result of mainly the unrest in Southern Sudan, Somalia and Eritrea. Currently, Ethiopia hosts more than 180,000 refugees predominately from Somalia and Eritrea. Since the law governing refugee status and protection has been promulgated, not much was said in evaluating the law and practice prevailing. This book aims to assess the normative and practical protection of refugees in the country. It assesses how Ethiopia is discharging its international and regional commitments in light of its long aged culture of hospitality. It gives an excellent account to those interested to know about refuge protection, particularly to students, academicians and policy makers
