SOME ASPECTS OF GLOBAL INFLUENCES, OPPORTUNITIES & CHALLENGES IN SIRBA, OROMIA REGION [Abstract ID: 1205-08]
In this paper, we intend to use data from a rural community in the Oromiyaa 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 from 2010 to 2018?
