by Dr. Jonathan Fine, PHR Founding Member

June 1992

Read the report (pdf)

The war in Somalia in the 1990s resulted in catastrophic famine, failed government, and a devastating legacy of land mines left from the civil war in the North. These added significantly to the economic devastation there, and were a principal obstacle in the way of repatriation of hundreds of thousands of refugees who fled to Ethiopia from northern Somalia during the civil war.
