The Use of Force in Somalia and Issues Relating to the Legality of Ethiopian and United States Intervention

Abstract

For many years the Horn of Africa has had more than its fair share of troubles in comparison to many other territorial expanses. Indeed the Horn could be described as a ‘hot spot’ for armed conflict, caused by a variety of factors.1 The Horn of Africa incorporates Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti and Eritrea.2 The most recent high-profile troubles in the area have taken place between Ethiopia and Somalia3, or it may be more appropriate to say that the troubles have involved those countries and others.
