This work describes the concept of expropriation from legal point
of view. It discusses the expropriation practice in Ethiopia by
raising issues such as public purpose, compensation and valuation
methods. Both payment of compensation and public purpose are the
two most important limitations on the government's power of
expropriation. The writer argues that although the Ethiopian
constitution guarantees land holders just compensation, because of
the other implementing legislations this constitutional principle
has not been upheld. He described the valuation method followed in
Ethiopia as a backward and the compensation amount paid to
expropriated people as unfair/unjust. In doing so the author
explores the different systems applied in the Amhara Region,
Ethiopia as compared to western systems.
