The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) published on 12 February 2016 a report titled "Closing Up Regulatory Gaps Key in Somalia's Fight against Al-Shabaab" by Meressa Kahsu, ISS Addis Ababa.

The author reports on a number of positive developments in Somalia but argues in order to weaken al-Shabaab, the Somali government needs to regulate money transfers, trade and telecom services by monitoring remittance institutions, banks and telecommunications companies.
