Somalia Needs More Action, Less Lip Service

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) published on 17 May 2017 a commentary titled "Somalia Needs More Action, Less Lip Service" by Meressa K. Dessu and Omar S. Mahmood.

Following the London Conference on Somalia, the authors argue that implementation of decisions also requires international cooperation and buy-in from all partners. They say that countries pursue independent security interests in Somalia, such as the United States' focus on counterterrorism or Kenya's desire for a buffer region along its border, and may not always put their own interests aside in the spirit of increased cooperation.
