Power, Politics and Conflict in the Horn of Africa
At this event, Alex de Waal will argue that leaders in the Horn of Africa operate on a business model: securing funds to run their governments, conduct trade, fight wars and make peace. This political marketplace is eroding the institutions of government and reversing state-building. The speaker will discuss how this is fuelled in large part by oil exports, aid funds and Western military assistance for counterterrorism and peacekeeping.
The event will launch the new book The Real Politics of the Horn of Africa: Money, War and the Business of Power by Alex de Waal, published by Polity.
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL AND REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
