Eritrea: Podcast with Martin Plaut

 The International Crisis Group posted on 6 October 2020 a half hour podcast titled "Eritrea's One-man Rule" with Alan Boswell and Martin Plaut, journalist at the University of London.  

Plaut explores how Isaias Afwerki has maintained his unyielding grip on power while pursuing his geopolitical ambitions in the region and beyond.  He describes a country pervaded with regime paranoia, extreme domestic repression, and isolationism that has somehow also managed to leverage itself into strategic partnerships with actors ranging from the UAE and Saudi Arabia to insurgent groups.
