Peace and Security in Somalia
Listen to the event below
In March, Matt Bryden, executive chairman of Sahan Research, joined us to discuss the major political and structural impediments to holding a constitutional referendum and national elections in Somalia by the end of the year, when the federal government's mandate will expire. Join us for a follow-up conversation with Mr. Bryden as he shifts his focus to the concurrent security challenges in Somalia: the continued threat of Al-Shabaab, an overstretched AMISOM peacekeeping mission, and the complex task of security sector reform.
Mr. Bryden is the author of two recent CSIS reports: Somalia Redux? Assessing the New Somali Federal Government (2013) and The Reinvention of Al-Shabaab (2014).
This event is made possible by general support to the CSIS Africa Program.
