The Horn of Africa is facing new rounds of peace and security challenges. Challenges in the region within member states coupled with externally driven disputes emanating from the Gulf and beyond have added new dynamics in the region. Continued crisis in South Sudan and Somalia; issues associated with political transitions, succession and elite bargaining in the sub-region; the resurgence of extremism; the growing involvement of non-state actors from elsewhere; the weakening of democratic institutions; and the worsening environmental condition of the sub-region have necessitated the recontextualization of the peace and security situations in the region.
Considering these developments, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the Centre for Dialogue, Research and Cooperation (CDRC) cordially invite you to a briefing on the “Emerging Security Challenges in the Horn of Africa”, by Dr. Annette Weber and Mr. Abdul Mohamed, both distinguished experts on the region.The program reads as follows:
