Muluneh Kassa, Demillie Mollaw

This piece of paper aimed to evaluate the nature of peace in current Ethiopian federation. Thus, different empirical information were collected to evaluate the situation. Under this piece of paper the writer collects incidents that was happen after 1991 up to present in Ethiopia, to determine the nature of peace in accordance with Galtung’s typology of peace. Accordingly, the author argued that even if currently violence is minimized relatively with the successive previous regimes, the nature of peace in contemporary Ethiopian political setup is basically categorized under negative peace. An issue of positive peace is unthinkable in contemporary Ethiopia because of the prevalence of different episodes which undermines the situation of peace across the state vividly.
