Summary

 

This document is based on the oral and written contributions of the participants to the National Conference for Democratic Change that built a partnership between the Eritrean political organizations and civil society organizations. It took place on 31st July – 9th august 2010 in Akaki about 20 km from Addis Abeba.

 

The document reflects the important discussions that took place during the conference and formulates the views and opinions expressed by the participants in their individual capacities in a conceptual framework and articulates the concrete change proposals in Eritrea.

 

The conference was organized by the Eritrean Democratic Alliance/EDA in collaboration with the civil society organizations and with financial support from the SAANA Forum. Over 330 people representing political and civic organizations, academia and veteran fighters, youth and women associations met in their individual capacities to discuss the problems and opportunities facing the Eritrean people.

 

Policy options are articulated here and change proposals developed as part of the national agenda to support and advance the democratic aspirations of the Eritrean people in the context of partnership between the political organizations and civil societies. This document is supposed to provide both the conceptual framework on which the conference for democratic change could be based, as well as a more practically oriented action plan on how to replace the dictatorship and build a democratic Eritrea.

 

Many of the ideas on national unity, means and modes of transition to democracy need to be discussed and debated further. In this regard, the document can be seen as one that identifies or maps out the issues on the agenda; it represents an , “ invitation” for further dialogue and encourages the reader to engage in the debate. With this document the Eritrean forces for democratic change are grateful for this opportunity to be able to contribute something in the struggle from dictatorship to democracy in Eritrea.
