New Somali Think Tank

Somalia has launched its first think tank, the Heritage Institute for Policy Studies (HIPS), in Mogadishu.  In January, it also launched the Forum for Ideas and its first topic for discussion was the U.S. recognition of Somalia.  Click here for a press release on this event in English and Somali.

I offer my congratulations to the organizers of HIPS and wish them every success.
