In a joint effort with the Institute for African Studies here at The Elliott School, ISCS is excited to host a book launch for ISCS resident scholar Dr. Paul D. Williams. In his new book, Fighting for Peace in Somalia, Dr. Williams provides the first comprehensive analysis of AMISOM, an operation deployed in 2007 to stabilize Somalia and defend its fledgling government from one of the world’s deadliest militant organizations, Harakat al-Shabaab. Dr. Williams will provide an engaging key note address and Jennifer Cooke, director of the Elliott School’s Institute for African Studies, will provide introductory remarks.
