  • Research background and methodology
  • Land rights in Ethiopia
  • Conceptualizing expropriation
  • Expropriation procedure
  • Public purpose
  • Valuation and compensation during expropriation
  • Conclusions and recommendations.
This thesis provides a new approach to the Ethiopian Land Law debate. The basic argument made in this thesis is that even if the Ethiopian Constitution provides and guarantees common ownership of land (together with the state) to the people, this right has not been fully realized whether in terms of land accessibility, enjoyability, and payment of fair compensation in the event of expropriation. Expropriation is an inherent power of the state to acquire land for public purpose activities. It is an important development tool in a country such as Ethiopia where expropriation remains the only method to acquire land. Furthermore, the two preconditions of payment of fair compensation and existence of public purpose justifications are not strictly followed in Ethiopia. The state remains the sole beneficiary of the process by capturing the full profit of land value, while paying inadequate compensation to those who cede their land by expropriation. Secondly, the broader public purpose power of the state in expropriating the land for unlimited activities puts the property owners under imminent risk of expropriation.

  • History of land tenures in Ethiopia
  • The current legal regimes of land governance in Ethiopia
  • Tensions between de jure and de facto transfer of land rights in Ethiopia : informal land deals vs. the command of the statute laws
  • Land reform policy and laws in Ethiopia : towards responsible land governance
  • Land governance and human rights in Ethiopia
  • Land governance and environmental protection in Ethiopia
  • Land policy options.
Land rights in general and transferability of land rights in particular have been a mind boggling subject for intellectuals, donors, and politicians in Ethiopia. The question of land and the rights attached to it has been a cause for political turbulence and instability in the nation as well. It is important to study the challenges of land policies pursued by successive regimes and the historical evolutionary course leading to the current land policy. The deadlocks on land policy issues in Ethiopia might superficially seem to hinge on preferences of which land governance system or legal regime must the nation adopt or adapt. However, land issues in Ethiopia are more than economic factors or principles of efficiency and preference of ownership systems This book explores the limitations of the current land system in Ethiopia, by assessing and analyzing the laws and policies pertaining to land and transferability of rights over land. This includes an evaluation of existing legislation against the background of the history of land use in Ethiopia and ensuing political struggles.

"The Ethiopian government has forcibly relocated to new villages some 70,000 mostly indigenous people during the first year of a three-year "villagization" program. Under the program, the Ethiopian government plans to move 200,000 people in Gambella region and 1.5 million in four other regions during the next three years. Human Rights Watch found that contrary to government claims that the transfers would improve access to infrastructure and basic services, the relocations were not voluntary, and that promised schools, hospitals, and agricultural support were not provided in the new villages. This report is based on interviews with over 100 transferred villagers, including refugees presently in Kenya. It details the inadequate consultation, the lack of compensation and intimidation, assaults and arbitrary arrests committed by state security forces against those who questioned the villagization program or refused to move. The food security situation in many new villages is dire because of disrupted harvests and insufficient food aid. Livelihoods have been disrupted, health care inadequate, and access to education and other services greatly limited. Villagization is happening in areas where the Ethiopian government is marketing and leasing land to investors for commercial agriculture. Villagers were told the reason for their displacement was because they were not farming the land productively and that commercial investors would make better use of it. Human Rights Watch calls upon the government of Ethiopia to halt ongoing human rights violations in the name of villagization and punish the perpetrators. Transfers to new villages should be voluntary, adequate compensation provided, and infrastructure should first be in place before people are relocated to these new villages. Ethiopia's foreign donors are concerned about the villagization program and have commissioned assessments of its effects but have not published their findings. The villagization program is indirectly funded in part by Western donors through the Protection of Basic Services (PBS) program. Human Rights Watch urges Western donors to ensure that no aid goes towards the villagization program"--P. [4] of cover.

"This report documents how government security forces are forcing communities to relocate from their traditional lands through violence and intimidation, threatening their entire way of life with no compensation or choice of alternative livelihoods. Government officials have carried out arbitrary arrests and detentions, beatings, and other violence against residents of the Lower Omo valley who questioned or resisted the development plans."--Publisher's website.
