Seeking solutions for Somalia

  • Brookings Institution 1775 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

Despite important progress through years of international counterterrorism, counterinsurgency, and state-building assistance, peace and sustainable stabilization remain elusive in Somalia. 

The Africa Security Initiative in the Foreign Policy program at Brookings will host a discussion on Somalia. Brookings Senior Fellow Vanda Felbab-Brown will brief her December 2017 fieldwork in Somalia and review key security and political developments. Landry Signé, a David M. Rubenstein fellow in the Brookings Africa Growth Initiative, will discuss how the persistence of bad governance, corruption, marginalization, and economic mismanagement have led to state failure and insecurity in the country. Brookings Senior Fellow Michael O’Hanlon will moderate the discussion.
