Is Now the Time to Downsize Somalia Peacekeeping Operation?

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) posted on 28 February 2019 an analysis titled "Is This the Right Time To Downsize AMISOM?" by Meresssa K. Dessu and Dawit Yohannes, both with ISS Addis Ababa.

AMISOM has been operating in Somalia for 12 years. As of 30 October 2018, the mission was set to downsize its military strength by 2,000 in two phases. Serious ongoing security threats posed by al-Shabaab and other armed groups raise questions about the timing of the draw down and the implications for Somalia's security.
