The Horn of Africa is in turmoil.

The Horn, a podcast series from the International Crisis Group, helps make sense of it all. Host Alan Boswell and guests dive deep behind the headlines as they analyse events, debate diplomacy and discuss possible avenues to peace. Produced by Maeve Frances. Episodes from past series of The Horn can be found here: Season 1, Season 2, Season 3 and Season 4.
