Human Rights in a Fragmented Society

Legacy PDF:

The departure of the last U.N. troops of the Somalia operation in March 1995 marks a critical juncture for Somalia, and for international peacekeeping. In researching this report, we set out to discover what would be left behind when the U.N. withdrew, what the prospects would be for the future, and what recommendations should be made to Somalis and the international community based on what we learned. Directed at Somali leaders at all levels of society, governments in the region, and at the wider international community, they concern the protection and promotion of human rights, but also larger issues of international peacekeeping, peace enforcement and humanitarian intervention.
