The Horn of Africa is one of the world’s most conflicted regions, experiencing over 200 armed conflicts since1990. Inrecent months, the region has been afflicted with drought, famine, refugee migrations and military confrontations. All of these dynamics have catapulted the Horn of Africa upwards on the priority list for US policymakers. 

In response to this on-going crisis, theWilsonCenter’s Project on Leadership and Building State Capacity established a Horn of Africa Steering Committee in 2010 that focused on developing a regionalUSpolicy framework for the Horn. A conflict mapping report that analyses the major patterns, cross-cutting issues, and interrelationships in the Horn’s ongoing armed conflicts was subsequently commissioned, as well as a set of recommendations forUSpolicy in the region going forward.

On February 29, 2012, the Leadership Project, in partnership with Alliance for Peacebuilding and Institute for Horn of Africa Studies and Affairs (IHASA) will present a publication. The overall objective of the recommendations is to employ a conflict resolution-oriented approach to aUS regional framework for the Horn, including the need to promote good governance, increase human security (not just state or regime security), strengthen regional cooperation, and boost economic development and regional economic integration.

This event will be taking place at the WoodrowWilsonCenterin the 6th Floor Auditorium on February 29th from 10:00am-11:30am.  Please RSVP to
