Abstract
This Contract Report summarizes the presentations given and discussions held at the Summit Workshop for Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) on Somalia and the Somali jihadist group al-Shabaab, held at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, 28-29 July 2011. This Workshop was organized as part of Phase 2 Framework Calibration of the research program for the Technology Investment Fund (TIF) Project 10az01 “A Conceptual Framework for Understanding Armed Non-state Actors (ANSAs): Strategic Roles and Operational Dynamics.” The aim of the Workshop was to provide the contracting teams for Phase 2 field work with essential background on the political, security and socio-cultural context within which al-Shabaab operates, as well as to provide the broader Government of Canada policy and intelligence community with a forum in which to discuss issues of pressing relevance to Canada’s engagement in the Horn of Africa.
