  • Support to the drafting of Ethiopian constitution in 1994: Believing that the making of the new Ethiopian Constitution was a pivotal episode in the life of African democracy, and considering that Ethiopia’s attempt to turn to democracy would throw light on the fate of constitutional democracy in the nation, IAG supported the drafting of the incumbent federal constitution.
