|Abstract: ||This study is about the problem of the Oromo national Question and its implications
for inter-state relations in the Horn. From the time of its emergence (1960s) and
transformation into national self-determination (1970s) onwards, though there have
been changes of different Ethiopian regimes with various political discourses, the
Oromo national question has not yet been given proper attention and consequently
remained unabated. The regimes have been using the military approach rather than
opting constructive solutions for it. Ever since in general and currently in particular,
however, the Oromo struggle for national self-determination has been going on -
even growing much deeper, wider and stronger. This has remained one of the main
sources of the political crisis not only in Ethiopia but also in the Horn region
adversely affecting the country's relations with its immediate neighboring states.
The main objective of this study is, therefore, to examine the implications of the
Oromo struggle for the Ethiopian relations with the neighbors and the overall region
as a whole. To achieve this objective, descriptive method is used to analyze qualitative
data gathered from secondary sources, The results of the analysis seem to suggest
