Somalia: Exit Strategy for AMISOM

The Washington Post posted on 30 November 2017 a commentary titled "Somalia's African Union Mission Has a New Exit Strategy. But Can Troops Actually Leave?" by Paul Williams, George Washington University.

Williams concludes that dilemmas facing AMISOM suggest it has no quick or simple exit strategy, which means renewed pressure on getting the politics and governance of Somalia's security sector right so that reforms can take place. This requires a deal between Mogadishu and regional administrations on implementing the new national security architecture, stamping out corruption in the Somali National Army and taking the fight to al-Shabaab.
