Author(s): Solomon Emiru Gutema

Abstract: It is a precise fact that hundred thousand of the Oromo peoples had evicted from the State of Somalia in the Ethiopian federation in the year of 2017/18. The causes of these large-scale evictions and internal displacement might be many; however, during those days, the criterion behind recruiting the displaced people was the Oromo identity or ethnicity. Hence, the question why displacement was occurred in general and why only the ethnic Oromo had been displaced selectively in particular at the time have remained a critical problem and therefore a subject of investigation till this date. Accordingly, the objectives of this research are to critically investigate and analyze the historical, political and legal causes, as well as, the repercussion of this massive eviction of Oromo people from the State of Somali in the present-day Ethiopian federation in the year of 2017/18. Thus, to fulfill its objectives, this research has employed a historical research design, as well as, a critical political and legal analyses method. As a conclusion, this research argues that despite its unpleasant economic and social consequence, this displacement can be considered as a comfort in affliction for the Oromo people in other perspectives in the post displacement time.
