What was the importance of Haile Selassie I to the Re-africanization of Ethiopia in the 20th century

ii Methods

The scope of this investigation is to discover Haile Selassie’s role in the Re-africanization movement[1] in Ethiopia in the 20th century. To carry out this investigation I will use primary and secondary sources. In addition a bibliography will be assembled and attached at the end of the investigation. A considerable amount of research for the bibliography will be carried out using the internet. I have also used an African history book about decolonisation in my research and a speech given by Selassie at a Pan-African meeting. An analysis of these sections will indicate the significance of Selassie’s contribution to the movement and a conclusion will be reached based on what has been derived from the evidence.


Haile Selassie I[2] became emperor of Ethiopia in 1930. Throughout his reign Haile Selassie worked on various economic and social reforms for the progress of his country and people, however Selassie´s most significant work was his actions in helping to achieve a Re-africanization of Ethiopia. He gave Ethiopia its first written constitution in 1931. Nevertheless before he officially was crowned emperor of Ethiopia, he had started to begin re-Africanizing the country.[3]

On Empirical Truth and Affective Truth

"We've always been at war with Eastasia."

Being able to be cloaked in the mantle of "truth," unfortunately, is extremely profitable to all manner of people.
