Policy Termination: Causes, Resistance & Its Implication to Policy Practices in Ethiopia

Dereje Terefe


Policy termination received less scholarly attention than other policy processes such as policy formulation, adoption, implementation and evaluation that are in frequent discourse. The last function which completes the loop, termination, is only within our subconscious minds.  Policy termination is a cessation of specific government‘s policies and programs. It implies that there is no need to continue with less outcomes and satisfactions from the clients. ‘Sunset law’ or legislative provision determines the longevity of a policy or program. The objective of this article is to examine the underlying causes of policy termination, its obstacles and implication to Ethiopian policy practices.

Key Terms: Public policy process, policy termination, and ‘sunset’ law.
