Putting the Horn of Africa Back Together

 The International Crisis Group posted on 23 December 2021 a 36-minute podcast titled "Putting the Horn of Africa Back Together" with Charles Onyango-Obbo, Ugandan journalist, Betty Kaari Murungi, Kenyan lawyer, and Harry Verhoeven, Columbia University.

The podcast asks if there is any way to reverse the political fragmentation in the Horn of Africa and to build a lasting order that can stem continuing conflict.  The Intergovernmental Authority on Development seems to be totally ineffective in the current situation, and there is no indication that it can step forward to solve these security issues.
