Intervention in Somalia

In August, the Institute for Security Studies in South Africa released a study titled "Somalia: The Intervention Dilemma" (PDF) on the challenges facing international intervention in Somalia.

Written by Jakkie Cilliers, Henri Boshoff and Festus B. Aboagye, it examines African Union force levels. It questions the African Union's interventionist strategy in Somalia, including the planned troop surge, and analyzes the terrorist dimension of the recent bombings, drawing parallels with Afghanistan as a basis for a holistic approach to the conflict in Somalia.

It concludes that the African Union mandate should be transferred to the United Nations.
