Historical Background:

Inspired by the plight of the people in the Horn of Africa and the desire to improve the conditions in which they live, Institute for Horn of Africa Studies and Affairs was launched in 2008 with the goal of providing accurate information about the Horn of Africa, building and improving the capacities of institutions and current/prospective leaders in the Horn of Africa and in the Diaspora communities. Furthermore, we seek to prevent and resolve conflicts in the Horn of Africa region.
