    Somalia’s ever-arduous transition

    06 March 2017. 

    The 8 February 2017 presidential election in Somalia afforded Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed (also known as Farmajo) an exceptionally strong mandate to fight corruption and governmental dysfunction, and to forge elusive state viability. But it is essential for him to ensure that Somali national forces are capable of maintaining Somalia’s security against the still-formidable jihadist group al-Shabaab before the UN-mandated African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) departs.

    Colombia: what comes next?

    08 February 2017. 

    The revised peace agreement in Colombia, though still controversial, is salutary. But to implement the agreement effectively, the government will have to follow through on its reintegration obligations to former FARC members and re-establish a presence in rural areas that brings security and stability. This will be an arduous process.
