Mary Harper, author of Getting Somalia Wrong?: Faith, War and Hope in a Shattered State, discusses how this "failed state" is far from being a failed society, as alternative forms of business, justice, and local politics still flourish. Arguing that there is a lot to be learned from the Somali way of doing things, Harper sheds light on why international engagement has had limited impact. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
