Eritrea’s arbitrary regime downplayed

Refugee protection denied

(10.03.2020) In July 2018 a peace treaty between Ethiopia and Eritrea was concluded, formally ending the border war between the two countries (1998-2000). This was followed in November 2018 by the lifting of UN sanctions against Eritrea. Since then, there have been repeated voices stating that the Eritrean regime has no more excuses to continue the repressive militarization of the population. Furthermore, the peace brought the hope that the human rights situation in the country would improve. However, as can be seen from the reports of Amnesty International, the UN Human Rights Committee, the UN Special Representative on the human rights situation in Eritrea and most recently Human Rights Watch, this is not the case.
