Eyewitness Eritrea is a project under the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR) and Center for the Study of Narrative and Conflict Resolution at George Mason University that aims to offer a more accurate portrayal for a country where narrative has became a battlefield of war. Why the focus on “eyewitness”? Eritrea is often defined by journalists and others who have never set foot in the country. Our objective is to create a body of work that offers a view from the ground. Eyewitness Eritrea is part of the Study Abroad Eritrea program that launched in June 2019. The project is in collaboration with civil society groups in Eritrea so that together we can work towards creating a narrative that more accurately reflects the nation.
