This Foreign Policy In Focus panel will review the continued challenges in Somalia as a reflection of a disrupting and often contradictory U.S. foreign policy, then share their recommendations on a way forward.

Invited panelists include:

  • Abdiweli Ali, Professor Niagra University and Somali Diaspora
  • Sadia Ali Aden, Human Rights Advocate and Freelance Writer
  • Mary Hope Schwoebel, US Institute for Peace
  • Eric Robinson, National Endowment for Democracy
  • Abdul Ahmed III, Arizona State University and Somali Diaspora
