Any imaginative attempt to carry forward Meles Zenawi’s legacy must proceed from a firm grasp of the theoretical underpinning of his visions, plan’s and policies and fidelity to the robustly critical spirit that animated his thoughts and actions. This includes understanding views alternative to his own, and the reasons he found compelling for rejecting them.

The foundation thus works to preserve his many distinctive contributions and make information available to a new generation of scholars. Our archive boasts a comprehensive collection of original materials on Meles Zenawi’s public life, engagements and accomplishments. It is an imitable resource for those seeking to study Ethiopia's modern social, economic and political history.

The collection is available to scholars and interested members of the public upon request. Please contact us on to request for access.
