Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed was announced as the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, with the committee that decides the awards singling out his efforts to achieve peace with neighboring country Eritrea.

But notably, the prize was not awarded to Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki, Abiy’s partner in the talks.

Tuesday marks the 25th anniversary of the imprisonment of three Jehovah’s Witnesses in Eritrea, where they have been subject to torture and allowed little contact with the world outside the prison walls.

Paulos Eyasu, Isaac Mogos, and Negede Teklemariam were detained on Sept. 17, 1994,apparently because they conscientiously objected to military service, according to a report published in August by the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Office of Public Information. They were held at the Sawa military training camp until 2017, when they were transferred to Mai Serwa prison, where they were briefly granted access to visitors for the first time since their imprisonment. None of the three have been charged or granted a hearing.

Eritrea is the world’s most censored country, according to a new report by a media watchdog which also cites extreme measures taken by authorities in nine other countries, including North Korea, China and Saudi Arabia.

The US-based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said on Tuesday that the worst three countries for press censorship – Eritrea, North Korea and Turkmenistan – use the media “as a mouthpiece of the state, and independent journalism is conducted from exile”.

Eritrea Mandate Needed Until Abuses Addressed

Interactive Dialogue with Special Rapporteur on Eritrea

We welcome the Special Rapporteur’s report and her identification of specific benchmarks which, if implemented, could set Eritrea on a path to meaningful human rights reform.

It is therefore all the more disappointing that, despite the Special Rapporteur’s constructive approach, there has been no cooperation from Eritrea, no access, and no change on the ground.

n a letter to the ministry of health, the Church said patients were ordered to go home, and soldiers were deployed to the centres to guard them.

In Ethiopia, Former U.S. Diplomats See Promise in Reform

As the country’s new, young leader spurs dramatic change, serious challenges lie ahead, say former American ambassadors

From left to right: USIP’s Aly Verjee; Amb. David Shinn, Amb. Aurelia Brazil, Amb. Marc Baas, and Amb. Donald Booth at USIP.

In Ethiopia, political prisoners are free and the security services revamped. Women now comprise half the cabinet, and serve as ceremonial head of state, chief justice, and chair of the electoral commission. Significant steps have been taken toward resolving a 20-year conflict with neighboring Eritrea and reforms to unleash the economy—already one of Africa’s fastest growing—are ostensibly on the way. Elections are slated for next year. Under Abiy Ahmed, the nation’s popular new prime minister, Ethiopia is changing in ways long desired by American policymakers, agreed four former U.S. ambassadors to the country. Yet the most the U.S. is likely to do is offer encouragement and a bit of support, they said.

About Us

ENCDC Central Committee members during the 2nd National Congress in Stockholm, Sweden, April 21, 2019

Eritrean National Council for Democratic Change (ENCDC) is a coalition of justice-loving Eritrean political parties and civic societies fighting to bring democratic change in Eritrea. First established in 2011 at the 1st Eritrean National Congress in Awasa, Ethiopia; ENCDC conducted its 2nd National Congress in Stockholm, Sweden on April 16-21, 2019; and reaffirmed its commitment to help end the authoritarian regime and usher a democratic change in Eritrea. The ENCDC is governed by a Political Charter and Bylaws and is run by a 61-member Central Committee and 7-member Executive Office.  At the 2nd National Congress, a new Political Charter and Bylaws were adapted, and elections were held to fill the Central Committee and Executive Office positions. ENCDC will work in coalition and coordination with all justice-loving groups and individuals to affect the needed change in Eritrea.
