Abstract

Ethiopia is one of the largest and poorest countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Emigration from Ethiopia began in the mid-1970s with large refugee flows and continues today with skilled migrants seeking opportunities outside of the country. Since 2002, the Government of Ethiopia has become one of the most active countries in Sub-Saharan Africa in engaging the diaspora. This paper offers a review of the institutional and policy arrang1ements developed in Ethiopia in the last decade and the effect of these institutions and policy on the diaspora and debates in Ethiopia.
