Somalia is at a critical juncture in its history, as former president Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was selected back in May to lead the country for a second term after having initially led the country from 2012-2017. It is in that environment that, earlier this week, the International Crisis Group published a report, “Considering Political Engagement with Al-Shabaab in Somalia,” which argued that, fifteen years of counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations have largely failed to defeat al-Shabaab in the field, it might be the right time to at least consider some initial confidence-building steps between the sides that could lead to a reduction in the violence plaguing the country.
