Security Challenges in Northeast Kenya

The International Crisis Group published on 17 November 2015 a report titled "Kenya's Somali North East: Devolution and Security."

Rampant criminality, inter-clan animosities and small-arms proliferation stretch policing and render highly insecure the refugee camps in northeast Kenya that host more than 350,000 Somali nationals.  Violent clan competition and antipathy between elected county elites and the national administrative  structures have allowed the extremist al-Shabaab movement to expand and operate with relative impunity across much of the northeast.
