VI. Areas of Specialization

        I have been teaching Agricultural Economics at Addis Ababa University for over
        two decades. My area of specialization is agricultural and institutional policy
        analysis with particular reference to regional economic analysis, rural labor use,
        property rights in land, resource management, technology policy, civil society
        organizations, pastoral economies, gender and development, informal finance, and
        indigenous knowledge systems. I am also interested in the global and regional
        dimension of Africa’s development including trade and regional integration. In

        with emphasis on the linkages among policies, institutions and development.
