  • [Press] New TRAFIG publication \ Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia

    • Eritrea has been in the top ten list of source countries for cross-border displacements throughout the last decade. TRAFIG working paper no. 5 examines the case of forced migration from Eritrea to Ethiopia as one of the primary destinations. Based on empirical research in refugee camps, settlements and cities there, the authors come to the finding that the capability to break free from protracted displacement is primarily determined by each refugee’s networks and connec...
    • Wednesday, 14 April 2021: In TRAFIG working paper no. 5, six researchers from Europe and Africa, working together in the context of the EU-funded project “Transnational Figurations of Displacement” (TRAFIG), dealt with forced migration from Eritrea to Ethiopia. They followed the research question how protractedness, dependency and vulnerability are related to the factors of local and translocal connectivity and mobility, and, in turn, how connectivity and mobility can be utilised to enhance the self-reliance...

    • Veteran combatants do not fade away: a comparative study on two demobilization and reintegration exercises in Eritrea
    • After 30 years of armed struggle for independence, Eritrea enjoyed only seven years of peace before war with neighboring Ethiopia broke out again and still is under way. In the short peaceful interval, tremendous efforts were deployed not only to rebuild the country’s material infrastructure, which was to a great extent destroyed, but also to rehabilitate the social tissue which had suffered severe wounds. The cessation of hostilities does not mean a return to “normalcy”. In the aft...

    • A matter of time and contacts: trans-local networks and long-term mobility of Eritrean refugees
    • Eritreans have experienced protracted conflict and displacement over the last half a century. Aside from marginalisation, immobilisation, highly constrained livelihood options and legal limbo, this has also created a complex and dynamic web of transnational networks of Eritrean refugees and diasporas around the world. In this paper, we argue that protractedly displaced people are not only entangled with forced immobility but also encounter opportunities to create new mi...

  • [Publication] Supporting self-reliance for local integration: Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia (TRAFIG Practice Note No. 5)

    • Supporting self-reliance for local integration: Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia (TRAFIG Practice Note No. 5)
    • Many Eritrean refugees who live in camps in Ethiopia have no translocal or transnational connections. This means they have little opportunity to move onward from the camp and resettle elsewhere. However, many of them have strong connections with the host community, and even the most vulnerable refugees show resilience in everyday life. For these refugees, local integration may be the only way out of protracted displacement. Donors and aid agencies can help.TRAFIG research has found ...
