Abstract:

This paper attempts to combine historical, social and political variables which make up the regional system that is the Horn of Africa. Ths work presents an evaluation and analysis that throws some light into events and external intrusions which contribute to the situation as it generally exists today. The region is viewed from four perspectives--internal aspects, regional linkages, strategic and a historical interpretation. These four are integrated to form an influential consideration and conclusions regarding the region and the potential areas of conflict or cooperation between those involved during the next ten to fifteen years or so. Keywords East Africa.
