The Horn Of Africa

Published måndag 30 mars 2009 kl 14.39

Last week Eritrea, a small country in the north-east of Africa became the focus of attention for all of Sweden’s big national newspapers. Running a united front-page campaign they called upon the Eritrean government to free Dawit Isaak, a Swedish-Eritrean journalist imprisoned in his native country without trial since September 2001 for writing on the need for democracy there. Meanwhile today there are reports that the former Swedish Foreign Minister Jan Eliason has held secret meeting with Eritrea’s President to ask for Dawit Isaak’s release.

Sweden’s connection with this region of Africa is deeper and goes back longer than many people know.

Radio Sweden’s Loulas Christodoulou looks at African and Swedish perceptions of Sweden’s role in the Horn of Africa.
