NS4328 Government and Security in the Horn of Africa

Addresses government and security issues in the Horn of Africa. Its main focus is on how conflicts in the region -- persistent civil war in Sudan, state collapse in Somalia, contentious ethnic politics and secessionist movements in Ethiopia and Djibouti, state formation processes in (internationally recognized) Eritrea and (internationally unrecognized) Somaliland -- interact to produce a particularly challenging regional security environment. We conclude with a consideration of what this regional security environment means for the War on Terrorism, as well as how the War on Terrorism is impacting the regional security environment. Prerequisites: None.
