Disconnect between Policy and Practice contrasts the policies and practices of the government in terms of the establishment of a constitutional, democratic and developmental state capable of promoting political participation, gender equality, and religious freedom. Using the policy instruments provided by the National Charter, the Macro-Policy paper and the ratified Constitution as benchmarks, the chapter exposes the existence of an enormous disparity between the stated policies and actual practices of the government. Linking the unfortunate political, economic and social reality prevailing in Eritrea today to this disparity, it concludes that its root cause is structural and its remedy lies in national renewal.
