Despite the apparent uniformity of the Somali nation, after the death of Siad Barre Somalia en-tered a process of fragmentation that continues to date.

The analysis examines the current context of the Kashmir conflict by comparing the states’ perspectives that have emerged from the India-Pakistan dialogue process initiated in 2004.

After 20 years of civil war, protracted states of conflict are the continuing hallmarks of Somalia.

Somalia ranks amongst the for-eign policy priorities of Italy, since the colonial times. Italian interests in Somalia are motivated by piracy and by the threat of terrorism, but also by the strategic position Somalia has in the region.
The deadline for the mandate of the transitional federal institutions, which should have expired the coming August, offers a unique occasion to rethink Italy's interests and involvement in Somalia.
Nearly a decade after the U.S. and NATO military engagement, Afghanistan remains a fragile state. Despite, involvement of foreign troops has increased, the Taliban insurgency remains the greatest threat to Afghanistan’s stability. As conflict continues, Nato leaders and the U.S. president Barack Obama announced a full military withdrawal by the end of 2014, due to begin in July 2011.
