My sixth paper for @GI_TOC has just gone live!

It takes a deep dive into Al-Shabaab's checkpoint 'taxation' system, drawing on over 800 'tax' receipts issued by al-Shabaab tax officials from July 2015 – Oct 2021. (thread) #Somalia

Such a large body of data allowed unique insights into Al-Shabaab's taxation practices. We were able to analyze tax rates over time and across different transportation routes.
Some highlights from the findings:

1) Al-Shabaab categorizes its checkpoint tax system into four streams:

🚚 Transit
📦 Goods
🌾 Agricultural produce
🐐 Livestock

NEW YORK: #Kenya’s President @WilliamsRuto #UNGA speech

“We are all witnesses to admirable demonstrations of effective solidarity in response to crises in various parts of the world. Our knowledge of the possibility of spontaneous yet resolute global solidarity reinforces…” Image
“…the African exception as particularly repugnant. From genocides and civil conflict to famine and pandemics, the African continent is consistently left behind to bear the brunt of weak solidarity and disastrous failure of multilateralism.” Image
“History indicates the last time that Africa was the focal point of strong and effective multilateral consensus was during the Berlin Conferences of 1884-1885, and the character of the ensuing interventions casts a long shadow to date.”- President @WilliamsRuto Image
