The Horn

International Crisis Group
News CommentaryNews

The Horn of Africa is in turmoil. From revolution in Sudan to civil war in Ethiopia, from Somalia’s political stalemate and the regional spread of jihadism to troubled East African democracies, the region’s pace and scale of change are difficult to keep up with. The Horn, a podcast series from the International Crisis Group, helps make sense of it all. Host Alan Boswell and guests dive deep behind the headlines as they analyse events, debate diplomacy and discuss avenues toward peace. Hosted by Alan Boswell and produced by Maeve Frances See for privacy and opt-out information.

    Will, totally biased analyst. No expertise at all on Horn Africa. Kicked out of Ethiopia trying to destabilize the Nation.
