Somalia Crisis

25/07/2011

Hello dear friends!

I haven’t updated this blog in a while, but that does not mean I have been idle! A quick recap of what I have been up to.

Earlier this week, I was invited to talk about the famine in Somalia on the BBC Word Service. You can listen to the clip here:  http://bbc.in/p4s4iB 

I have also written an article about the stigma surrounding mental health illness in the Somali community in the Diaspora. The piece has been published by the United Nations news service IRIN. You can read it here.   http://bit.ly/ojzk9A

I am currently working on a series of articles looking at China’s engagement with Africa.  The articles features an interview with former US ambassador to Ethiopia, David Shinn, who offers a unique perspective on China’s interest in the Horn of Africa, so stay tuned!
