Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the role of CSOs in the development of democratic political culture in Ethiopia. Descriptive survey method was used to attain the objective of the study. The study was conducted by using 27 CSOs engaged in the development of democratic political culture of the country, 5 donor agencies and 3 concerned government organizations. Respondents were executives of CSOs, government official and representatives of donor agencies. Respondents were selected through purposive sampling. Questionnaires, interviews and document review techniques were employed. The statistical tools used to analyze data were percentage, tables, graphs and charts. The results have revealed that the historical role of CSOs in the development of democratic political culture of the country was a recent development where CSOs have spent considerable time in service delivery activities. As far as the contributions of CSOs in the area are concerned, it is insignificant. CSOs have faced many challenges many of which arise from government. The CSO-state relation in the area in Ethiopia was not smooth for various reasons. There were also instances where CSOs were engaged beyond their mandate especially in the political activities. The government of FDRE has enacted CSP in 2009, which governs CSOs in Ethiopia. Its immediate impact will be negative while in the long term its effect will be positive.
