The Right to Reparation for Human Right Violation in Ethiopian Legal Framework

Kidus Meskele Ashine


This term paper explores the place of the right to reparation of victims of human right violation in the present Ethiopian Legal Frame work .It inquiries whether victims of human right violation  have a legally recognized substantive right to reparation within the current Legal frame work. It examines if there are sufficient legal mechanisms that provide for their treatment and reparation when they bring cases before our courts. A detour to survey of emerging trends is also made with a view to bring the issues under consideration in broader perspectives. After a thorough analysis of the existing legal framework in Ethiopia, the article finally concludes that victims of human right violation currently (1) do not have adequate recognition,  and (2) are without sufficient legal mechanisms which provide for their treatment and reparation in the justice system. Hence, the writer  recommends for the formulation of   a comprehensive law & the inclusion of state reparatory scheme so that  the  special concerns, needs, interests and sufferings of victims will be addressed as to the international standard.
