About CFGS

The CFGS is a teaching and research center within the College of Law and Governance Studies of Addis Ababa University. The CFGS was established in 2007, some twelve years after the adoption of the 1995 Constitution and the establishment of the Ethiopian federal system. At the time there was no a single institution exclusively dedicated to studying federalism in Ethiopia. It was established with the vision to be a leading center of excellence in teaching, research and consultancy in multilevel government (federalism, devolution, local government) with a view to promoting unity in diversity, good governance, peace and development in Ethiopia and the Horn region.
