An Eritrean border war near the turn of the century created a tense climate of war, there existed harsh censorship, lack of free press, and firm punishment of dissenters. Bernal argues that these factors sparked the perfect foundation for the Eritrean diaspora to mobilize and affect politics in their homeland through cyberspace.

Bernal used “participant webservation” to understand how the diaspora’s involvement in Eritrea has evolved from the 1990s and into the new millennium. I could not find details on specific data management practices.
