MINN Event: Somalia - Delivering Humanitarian Assistance in an Insecure Environment
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm
Somalia is in a desperate state. Shattered by a devastating famine, perpetual insecurity triggered by Al Shabaab, and a government that has been inoperative since 1991, Somalia is not poised to undertake its recovery unilaterally. Ranked as one of the most violent places in the world, operating inside Somalia requires precise skill like nowhere else in the world. How can international players deliver assistance to this vulnerable population? What best practices and innovations in aid have shown promising results?
Join us for a panel discussion at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Registration for the event begins April 25.
