Ever since 1991 Somalia has been marked by a brutal civil war, especially between al-Shabab militia and the government. But now, finally, the country has started to rise again, and the militia are losing ground. Now the country faces it’s perhaps greatest challenge ever: How to manage the difficult and critical transition from war to peace. We have invited the world-renowned author Nuruddin Farah to speak about his encounter with the “new Somalia” his thoughts about the future of the country. The meeting will be held in english.
