WHO WE ARE
Oromo Governance and Policy Research Institute (OGPRI) is an initiative established to promote, inform, train, research, inspire and engage individuals, groups, communities and public entities that are involved in promoting indigenous peoples’ ways of life, good governance and inter-communal relations and strengthen ancient socio-political organizations. Gadaa is an indigenous socio-political system that is ingrained in and practiced by the Oromo people for centuries notwithstanding the multifaceted and protracted political, economic and environmental changes that continuously affect peoples’ conditions.
Gadaa has proved to be an incredibly resilient, highly adaptable and compellingly infused with modern democratic tenets of fundamental rights, justice, equality, liberties equity, transparency, integrity, and rule of law.
OGPRI will consolidate the gains made by the Oromo people in ‘living’ this enduring system by cementing communal values of unity,
compassionate services, peace and cohesion, solidarity and cooperation, inclusivity and diversity, fairness and fortitude and timeless flow of wisdom.
OGPRI will roll out a comprehensive programme that will bring together traditional and academic experts on Gadaa ideals and practices, transformative Gadaa leadership and governance, transcendental Gadaa tenets of peace and tranquility, protection of environmental and natural resources, training of leaders, civic education and information sharing.
