Migration and state formation after colonialism. The Eritrean Experience is about relations between Africa and Europe, historical and contemporary. Most papers focus on the situation facing migrants, forced and voluntary, from Eritrea and other African countries when seeking entry to Europe. Virtually all African migrant communities are hard hit by structural racism and social exclusion. Migration within Africa, and out of Africa is driven by a combination of forces. Economic underdevelopment is a legacy from the colonial period. Unsustainable land policies generate migratory movements when rural populations no longer can provide for themselves. Forced migration is an outcome of the systematic violation of Human rights, wide-spread presence of corruption, and lack of democratic rule. These issues eem to be linked up with the precarious processes involved in 'state formation' and nation-building.
