Call for Submissions: Book Chapters in "Ethiopia: Social, Economic and Political Issues"

There have been significant social, economic and political changes in in Ethiopia in recent decades. Healthcare coverage has rapidly expanded but much progress is still needed; access to education has improved but there are questions of quality and employment; macro-economic growth has been amongst the highest in the world for over a decade but there are questions of rising inequality; infrastructure has expanded throughout the nation, often at the expense of some; the second largest safety net in Africa has received acclaim and criticism; foreign direct investment has been relatively strong, but the quality of employment opportunities is questionable; recent political transitions have changed a negative narrative more positive, but many questions about democracy and inclusion remain. This edited volume will present diverse experiences, perspectives, geographies, and sectors in the social, economic and political realms. The collection of research will show the complexity of the changes, and the diverse ways in which change is experienced.
