    The Trump–Russia connection

    20 April 2017.  The ongoing congressional and FBI investigations of possible coordination between President Donald Trump's campaign team and Russia to influence the the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election threaten, at a minimum, to undermine Trump’s policy priorities. If even some of the accusations prove true, they will produce the biggest White House scandal since the Iran-contra affair in 1985–87 in an inexperienced administration already beset by infighting.

    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.
