1. FELEKE, DEBELA ZEWDIE. CHANGES AND CONTINUITIES IN ETHIO-US SECURITY .

Degree: 2012, Addis Ababa University

International relations as a discipline that studies the interactions between and among states have gripped the attention of many scholars. These scholars have derived different theories and principles that are presumed to result in smoother and cooperative relations between and among states. Despite the development of diverse theories and principles of international relations, contacts between and among states have not been as contemplated by those good wishing scholars. In this regard, the coherent nature of international relations- cooperation and conflict-have persistently continued. Plus, these features of international relations are still governing the trends of relations between states. Ethio-US relation is not an exception in this regard. The century old relations between Ethiopia and the United States have so far been traversing through these controversial features- conflict and cooperation. The cooperative features of the Ethio-US relations have contributed to the buildup and the continuity of the cordial relations. On the other hand, the conflicting characteristic of the relations between the two countries have brought in changes in the manner of the relations from a friendly type to an unfriendly mode, or have contributed to the shaping of unpleasant and hostile relations. This essay endeavors to identify the factors that have contributed to the continuity of the friendly relations between the United States and Ethiopia. On the other hand, the factors that have resulted in changes in the gracious relations between the two countries have also been scrutinized. The methodology applied to gather the data is a qualitative one. This method is put in use because; the data used in conducting the research is totally related to words observations, and the approach has been analyzing and interpreting the data. By examining, analyzing and interpreting the data the thesis has identified the factors of Ethio-US security relations. Accordingly, the Kagnew Communication Base, the secessionist group in Eritrea, the Republic of Somalia before and after its disintegration, the Cold War phenomena, the end of the Cold War and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the geo-political position of Ethiopia, and the international political system have been identified as the major ones. These factors of relations have played different roles in shaping the relations to continue either in a friendly fashion or to change the mode of the relations Advisors/Committee Members: ASNAKE KEFALE (advisor).

2. ABEBE, ALEMU MELESE. A THESIS SUBMITTED TO THE SCHOOL OF GRADUATE STUDIES OF ADDIS .

Degree: 2012, Addis Ababa University

Ethiopian has had long-standing bilateral relations with the Arabian Peninsula dating back to ancient Axumite kingdom. The relations were manifested in terms of religion, economic, and political aspects. In all of these contacts, the interaction has had both challenges and opportunities. For instance, starting from 1932 (after the formation of Saudi Arabia, taking much of Arabian Peninsula) until 1991, there were no active relations between Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia. However, 1991 was the turning point in the relation between the two countries. In these years, economic interactions took more importance though political and religious contacts still have significance. This research thesis looks into post-1991 Ethiopia and Saudi Arabian economic relations: taking agricultural investment and trade as the main focus. It aims to understand the challenges and opportunities that these agricultural investment and trade bring to Ethiopia when the country conducts its economic relation with Saudi Arabia. The study argues that Saudi Arabia has strategic, religious and economic interest towards Ethiopia. But due to political development in Ethiopia after 1991, economical interests prevailed over other interests. In view of this, the objective of this thesis is to provide empirical evidences regarding the advantages and disadvantages of agricultural investment and the types of export and import items that Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia are trading with each other. The thesis indicates that trade relations and Saudi investment in agricultural sector are increasing tremendously in recent years. To study these issues, the thesis has used qualitative research methodology. In chapter two and three, available literatures were reviewed to discus about historical relations of the two countries. Concerning advantages and disadvantages of the agricultural investment, unstructured interview were conducted with workers of Saudi Star Agricultural Company, residents in Gambella, and pertinent officials in agricultural areas. This study tries to answer research questions: Why has Saudis economic interest increased after 1991 in Ethiopia? What are different factors for trade imbalance which is usually in favor of Saudi Arabia? What are the roles of Saudi agricultural investment for the food security in Ethiopia? The findings from data analysis showed that the economic relationships between the two countries are in favor of Saudi Arabia in agricultural investment and trade. With regard to agricultural investment, Saudi investments in this sector do not solve food insecurity in Ethiopia; it is merely for export to the Saudi market. Also, available data show that Ethiopia imports more commodities from Saudi Arabia than it exports. Advisors/Committee Members: Asnake Kefale (advisor).
