Speaker Presentations

Prof. Hodan Said Isse

Adjunct Assistant Professor at University of Buffalo
Nation-building and Peace-Building Through Economic Development.

Dr. Hodan Said Isse challenged the international community to rethink the engagement in Somalia as a positive, constructive and long-term engagement. She mentioned how youth and women, who bear the brunt of war, are at the heart of nation building. The 21 years of war have destroyed Somalia's institutions. Somalia needs rehabilitation, healing and support to go from problems to promise. The blunt reality of Somalia is that its productive capacity of limited resources is many times less than Somalia's needs and wants. The incentives made available to the Somali people by the international community play an important role in either promoting clan division and hatred or clan harmony and peaceful coexistence.
