Current Developments, Peace and Stability in the Horn of Africa
The Horn of Africa (HOA) is the most conflict prone region in Africa. It suffers from several inter-related pathologies. They include festering wars, state crisis, environmental degradation, poverty, youth unemployment, migration, exclusion of women and youth, external interventions and democratic deficiency.
The Nordic Africa Institute (NAI) and the Somali International Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) will host a virtual conference on Current Developments, Peace and Stability in the Horn of Africa. During this a two-day conference, invited participants will discuss current development, peace and stability in the Horn of Africa.
