Will Somalia's Elections Change the War on Al-Shabaab?

The National Interest published on 11 October 2016 an article titled "Will Somalia's Elections Change the War on Al-Shabaab?" by James Barnett, a Boren scholar in Tanzania.

The author concludes that despite their numerous flaws, the elections should at least provide moderate political stability by appeasing Somalia's powerful clan leaders. This, in turn, will allow African Union forces and the Somali National Army to focus on ousting al-Shabaab from its remaining territories.
