After the collapse of the military regime in 1991, Ethiopia's successor state, which is led by the Ethiopian Peoples' Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), has been faced with the task of putting democratic ideals into practice under conditions of great economic scarcity. Democracy, based on group rights, and decentralization of the country on ethno-lingual criteria are two ideals of the new federal constitution. Political Power and Democratization in Ethiopia examines the problems with Ethiopian democratization efforts and how these problems can be solved.
