Williams (2017) explains that the conflicts since around 2010 have been primarily of two types, state conflicts and conflicts of marginalized sections of society.  Dave-Odigie (2011) suggests that large native involvement, disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration programs can be part of conflict resolution for Somalia.  Weber (2020) explains shortages in medical care and equipment in the Horn of Africa that are being exasperated by the pandemic.  Griffith, Pius, Manzano, and Jost (2020) describe logistical, financial, and organizational public service delivery challenges for pastoral communities during the pandemic.
