The present study focuses on critical analysis of diversity inclusion strategies reflected in the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopian constitution adopted in 1995. Specifically, the main intent of the study was to examine whether or not the constitution addresses diversity issues in the country. Hence, the study tried to explore the inclusion of societal diverse interests in the constitution by considering the context of many dimensional diversity issues of the society in the nation. The units of analysis, thus, include articles and sub articles of the document. These units of analyses were included in the analysis of the document as long as the articles and sub articles refer to issues such as diversities on ethnicity, gender, nationalities, language, culture and religion. Furthermore articles and sub articles in the document were critically examined in search of different expressions that deal with the diversity issues on one hand or on the other, followed by the interpretation of the meanings and messages manifested through words or phrases such as equality, recognition, empowerment, valuing, tolerance, respect, diversities, appreciation of differences, mutual understanding, conflict management and resolution, mutual coexistence and others related to these themes. Finally based on major findings solicited, conclusion and recommendation were forwarded.

Abstract


The present study focuses on critical analysis of diversity inclusion strategies reflected in the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopian constitution adopted in 1995. Specifically, the main intent of the study was to examine whether or not the constitution addresses diversity issues in the country. Hence, the study tried to explore the inclusion of societal diverse interests in the constitution by considering the context of many dimensional diversity issues of the society in the nation. The units of analysis, thus, include articles and sub articles of the document. These units of analyses were included in the analysis of the document as long as the articles and sub articles refer to issues such as diversities on ethnicity, gender, nationalities, language, culture and religion. Furthermore articles and sub articles in the document were critically examined in search of different expressions that deal with the diversity issues on one hand or on the other, followed by the interpretation of the meanings and messages manifested through words or phrases such as equality, recognition, empowerment, valuing, tolerance, respect, diversities, appreciation of differences, mutual understanding, conflict management and resolution, mutual coexistence and others related to these themes. Finally based on major findings solicited, conclusion and recommendation were forwarded.
