Books Info:

Returnees, Resettlement and Power Relations free pdf In the mid-1970s an ethno-nationalist movement, the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), emerged in North Ethiopia. In 1984-85 the guerrillas managed to lead a large part of Tigray's people, threatened by famine and civil war, to the Sudan. The fugitives stayed there for six to seven years in camps led by TPLF people. They received training in ideology and self-sufficiency. In 1991 the TPLF ousted the dictatorial Dergue regime in Addis Ababa and shortly thereafter the fugitives returned to resettlement villages in Humera, set up by the new TPLF-led government. This study describes the flight to the Sudan, the sojourn there and the life in two of the new settlements in Humera: Mai Kadra and Rawyan. The author calls attention to the political dimension of resettlement programmes in general and of this top-down mass migration in particular. This aspect is often overlooked amidst the welter of humanitarian, organisational and administrative issues.
