It might feel as though the rest of the world has given up on Somalia. This is not, however, something the rest of the world can afford to do: the country’s perch on the Horn of Africa gives it extraordinary strategic importance. Though the money spent on Somalia has not stopped it being poor – and peacekeeping missions have found little peace to keep – the international community has to stay engaged, especially as a fresh drought threatens famine. What can be done to help Somalia now? And how much headway is Somalia’s own precarious government making? Andrew Mueller is joined by Abdi Samatar, Mary Harper and Hussein Sheikh Ali.
