Eritrea - A Country Under the Sway of a Dictatorship

Description and Content of the Booklet

(05.07.2018) This booklet is based in large part on the contributions of the conference “Eritrea and the Ongoing Refugee Crisis”, which took place in Brussels on 19 October 2017.

Some of the speeches were written and edited by the editors. Other contributions were provided by the speakers themselves. The editors have supplemented this with up-to-date information and articles in order to provide a comprehensive overview of the situation in Eritrea, the situation of Eritrean refugees and initiatives and activities.

The conference was organized by the Eritrean Movement for Democracy and Human Rights, Europe External Policy Advisors (EEPA), PRO ASYL e.V., Connection e.V., War Resisters’ International and the Eritrean Law Society.

Cover EBCO Report 2015

EBCO publishes its Report 2015 on Conscientious objection to military service in Europe

A sad continuity of problems

(10.12.2015) On International Human Rights Day the European Bureau for Conscientious Objection (EBCO) publishes its new Annual Report “Conscientious objection to military service in Europe 2015”. “It remains a scandal that the violation of the human right of conscientious objection to military service continues to be a daily occurrence in several member states of the Council of Europe”, EBCO President Friedhelm Schneider said today. “And it is a shame that members of European institutions seem to resign themselves to this unacceptable state of affairs.”

Eritrea: Conscientious Objection and Desertion

Booklet, March 2005

(01.03.2005) In autumn 2004, the Germany based Eritrean Antimilitarist Initiative and Connection e.V. published a documentation on conscientious objection and desertion in Eritrea. The core of this documentation, interviews with refugees from Eritrea, who managed to escape from violence and war, and who now face the European Unions anti-asylum policy, give a very moving impression of the plight of young Eritreans, male and female, who grow up in an extremely militarised environment.
