Starting September 2, and operating over the month of September, in lead up to our October 1st event, we will be publishing articles from various foreign policy professionals and students that highlight, debate, and question the many challenges and opportunities that exist in the Horn of Africa.
Two articles will be published every Tuesday and Thursday for the month of September. Each Tuesday and Thursday one article will be published from a development/humanitarian perspective while the other will focus on economic, infrastructure and security issues.
Our goal is to stimulate debate on the Horn of Africa and to engage people on what role Canada should play in the region. To achieve that goal, we tried to represent many different perspectives on the current challenges and opportunities that exist in the region. As such, our curated list of articles feature a diverse and engaging set of perspectives: from a host of stories that challenge our current approach to aid in the Horn - to personal reflections on South Sudan's struggles from an employee of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development - to an in-depth series that examines the complexities of large infrastructure projects in the region - to a four part series on the challenges in Somalia - to a personal account of the Sultanate of Awsa.
With so much diversity there is a story for everyone! While the debate is set to accumulate at our event on October 1, please feel free to reach out to us on any of our various social media platforms (see the buttons above).
To stay current on our new publications be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram (see the above buttons). Please also join our mailing list as we will be doing a weekly round up of stories.

Let the debate begin,
