A RETROSPECTIVE LOOK AT STUDENT ACTIVISTS IN ETHIOPIA: A LIFE COURSE OF BECOMING, BELONGING AND LEADING
The introduction of higher education 65 years ago in Ethiopia provided a context and avenue for students to engage in activism. As such, the student movement literature shows two historically and temporally distinctive periods of student protests, campus unrests, and other forms of student actions. The first period, which was roughly from the late 1950s to the mid-1970s, was widely portrayed by scholars as a milestone in Ethiopian social movement and contentious politics, and a great deal of literature exists which shows the evolution, spread and political significance of student activism during this period. The second period, which spans from 1990 to present, has not only showed the continued commitment of student activists, but it has also brought a challenge to the scholarship of social movement. Despite the wide spread protest movements in the growing higher education landscape, only few studies exist, leaving a significant gap in our knowledge about student activists.
