Press Release

With both Afghanistan and Somalia strongly affected by US policy, the results of this year’s US Presidential elections are critical for both countries. Currently, three candidates remain in contention to succeed President Bush in the White House: Democratic rivals Senator Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton, and Republican Senator John McCain.

In March-April 2008, a series of interviews were carried out in Afghanistan and Somalia to gauge the extent to which the United State Presidential Candidates were known in each of these countries, which candidates were favoured and why. This interview report precedes a comparison of the insurgencies of both Afghanistan and Somalia to be released on the 23rd April, 2008 in London.
