Somalia: the Intervention Dilemma
This Policy Brief examines the apparent urgency to increase African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) force levels. It examines the AU’s interventionist strategy in Somalia, including the planned troop surge and analyzes the terrorist dimension of the bombings, drawing parallels with the Afghanistan case as a basis for suggestions for a clear and holistic approach to the conflict in Somalia.
