The terrorist group affectionately known as Al-Shabaab, remains a threat to security and legitimate governance in the African country of Somalia. As a result of a security and governance vacuum, the group has managed to capitalize on cultural norms, and sometimes transcending clan politics to establish an enduring and growing presence where other organizations have fallen short.
