Welcome to Focus on the Horn! We are a collaborative blog initiated by a group of post-graduate students at Oxford University. Over the next month we will slowly begin building up posts that feature regular commentary and research on issues throughout the Horn of Africa from a wide group of authors and contributors, both from within Oxford and beyond. Reviews, announcements of events, conferences, and opportunities in the region will also be updated in the respective sections of the website (see tabs above). And if you are in the Oxford, UK area, we hold a weekly seminar where researchers present current work on countries in the Horn. We will post announcements for the seminar here, and hope to launch a podcast of the talks soon.
This blog will ideally foster an active and constructive community to learn and discuss pressing issues for this ever-changing region. Do feel free to comment, contribute, and get in touch. Happy reading!
