Outlines the historical background, since the Italian colonization of 1890, to the ratification of Eritrea's constitution on 23 May 1997, which marked the end of 30 years of secessional war with Ethiopia. It recounts the work of the Constitutional Commission of Eritrea, appointed in the wake of the referendum of 1993, in devising and establishing constitutional government for an independent Eritrea. It describes the consultative processes employed and the constitutional architecture produced. The chapter concludes with a prognosis for the country's future democratic stability.
