Eritrea: gathering evidence on the reality of military service


Last autumn, the United Nations Human Rights Council appointed a Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation on Eritrea - Sheila Keetharuth.

WRI will be submitting information to Sheila on the reality of military service in Eritrea, and the lack of rights for conscientious objectors. To do this, we will be gathering evidence from Eritreans now living in the UK, Israel, South Africa, Germany and other countries.

If you are an Eritrean living in Diaspora, and would like to get involved in this project – either by answering our survey yourself, or by putting us in touch with other Eritreans who you think would be interested in talking to us, please contact us at
