The South African Brenthurst Foundation published in January 2015 a discussion paper titled "Less is More? The Role of Outsiders in 'Fixing' Somalia" by Dickie Davis, a retired major general in the British Army, and Greg Mills, Brenthurst Foundation.
The study focuses on the reasons why Somalia might finally break from its deeply troubled past to chart a new course. The role of the international community needs to remain one of careful and realistic engagement, not prodding and grand schemes. Less can be more.
