Enguday Meskele Ashine


In Ethiopia, recognition is given for domestic worker’s rights in different dimensions. However, domestic workers are most vulnerable groups for abuses and violation of their human rights. In addition; the right to education of domestic workers has been grossly neglected by the state. Arguing that the policy and legislative initiatives are a prerequisite to the realization of the right to education of domestic workers, the paper explores the legal gaps in realization of domestic workers right to education.. Furthermore, the study develops an analytical framework for the right to education of domestic workers, derived from Ethiopian ratified international and regional legal instruments which guarantees the right to domestic workers.
