The is ue of connict and conni ct resolution are seldom handl ed in literature on Oromo. The rnpresent study aims at addressing thi missing gap. It therefore, documents some aspects of rnconflict and conni ct resolutions among the Wa liso Oromo. The thesis ex plores some loca l rninstitutions and practices of dea ling with connict with espec ial emphasis on the case of rnhomicide. rnThe Oromo In general and the Waliso in particular were incorporated into the present rnEthiopia by the last quarter of the nineteenth centu ry. Since the time of incorporation, rnespec iall y since the 1930's enac tment of criminal law of the Empire of Ethiopia, the Wa liso rnhave dea lt with dispute cases through two di ffe rent administrations of justice. These are: the rngovernment court and the lTad itional Oromo system of justice. The latter has undergone rnconsiderable changes due to internal dynamics and external innuences. However, basic rnOromo administration of justice is still persisting. Consequently, the majori ty of dispute cases rnamong the Waliso Oromo are handled at loca l level by loca l insti tutions, according to the rnlocally set laws. The data from this study clearly shows that there are various fac tors that rnproduce this effect. As opposed to government court, Oromo institutions are highly value rnoriented and embedded in the belief system. They are also capable of considering both the rnsocial ties of the disputants and the context of the proceedings. In the mean time, the Waliso rnmake a tactical move from local mechanisms to government cOLlli and vice- versa. An appeal rnto government court is mainly used to enfo rce their own value and justice system. rnParadoxically, the threat of government intervention fac ilitates resolution through local rninstitutions.
