Eritrea: Refugees

Volume 476: debated on Wednesday 21 May 2008

Conditions in Eritrea are continuously monitored from a wide range of reliable sources including intergovernmental organisations (such as the UN), governmental sources (including Foreign and Commonwealth Office posts abroad) and human rights organisations (for example Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch). This information is published in Country of Origin Information (COI) reports on the Home Office website. The latest COI report on Eritrea was published in February 2008 and can be found at the following link:
