In 2013, a group of individuals who shared similar life experiences started the Eritrean Forum for National Dialogue (EFND). At the beginning, the group analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of the dictatorial regime in Eritrea and specifically evaluated the internal and external factors that are helping it to continue and extend its existence. Based on this evaluation, the group came up with a political groundwork which can embrace all ranks of the opposition. As the goal of the opposition is to bring about change and a transition, the EFND came up with a fundamental structure and began its work for a peaceful transition.
