Summary:
"This report examines the economic dimensions of regional conflict and cooperation in the Horn of Africa. It asks whether, over the long term, economic drivers have the potential to transform endemic conflict among states or whether political stability is a precondition for enhancing economic cooperation. Formal processes to advance regional economic integration usually founder against the challenges of war and distrust. However, the success and versatility of informal trade networks reveal an alternative path to future regional economic integration and demonstrate that cross-border linkages do not have to be mediated by formal institutions. The frame of reference is broadly the Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD) -- Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda"--P. viii.
