” In recent years, U.S. air operations in Somalia have surged. However, with this increase, questions remain about the targets of such strikes, the strategy guiding strike decisions, and the outcomes and implications of such operations – including regarding civilian casualties. Join us at the Stimson Center for an expert discussion on the challenges posed by the United States’ approach to airstrikes in Somalia and around the world, and the impact of these operations on standards for transparency and accountability.
