THE RECENT IMPACT OF GLOBALISATION ON A RURAL COMMUNITY IN AMHARA REGION: YETMEN, ENEMAY WEREDA, EAST GOJJAM [Abstract ID: 1205-07]

Sarah VAUGHAN, Independent
SHALOM Ali, Welkite University, Ethiopia

In this paper we intend to use data from a rural community in Amhara Region from an upcoming fourth round of the Ethiopia WIDE longitudinal study planned for early 2018. We will explore the ways in which different dimensions of ‘globalisation’ have affected the trajectory of the community since the last round of research in 2010. How, if at all, have climate change, information and communications networks, imported technologies, international trade, investment and aid, religious proselytising from abroad, neo-liberal, developmental state, humanitarian and other political ideologies, international migration and links with diasporas, and other dimensions of ‘globalisation’ impinged on the community and its members during the period 2010 to 2018?
