Chapter Summary

This chapter covers major domestic political developments, the foreign policy and socio-economic trends in Eastern Africa - all related to developments in one calendar year. External attention on the sub-region continued to be mainly focused on the increasing threat by Somali pirates to international shipping in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden and, to a lesser extent, on the continuing armed conflicts in Somalia and in the Darfur region of Sudan. Other conflict zones received almost no international attention and were left unresolved, albeit without any renewed belligerent confrontations.

Keywords: domestic politics; Eastern Africa; foreign affairs; socio-economic developments
