Abstract:Why and how should the international community deal with the collapsed State of Somalia? From the presence of al-Qaeda operatives to pirates, to what extent is Somalia a threat to global peace and commerce? Can select Somali success stories provide guidance on how to correct what is most wrong with Somalia? This special issue of the 'Journal of Contemporary African Studies' sheds light on these questions. Contributions: Introduction: the myth of 'Somalia' (Brian J. Hesse); The UN-led Djibouti peace process for Somalia 2008-2009: results and problems (Apuuli Phillip Kasaija); Somalia and global terrorism: a growing connection?

Chau); An open letter to Uncle Sam: America, pray leave Somalia to its own devices (Said S. Samatar); Putting Somali piracy in context (J. Peter Pham); Where Somalia works (Brian J. Hesse).
