COI podcast, episode 2: Socio-economic situation in Somalia

The COI podcasts (in German language), a cooperation between ACCORD and the University of Heidelberg, talk about backgrounds that can help to better understand country of origin information.

The content of the conversation is not intended for direct use in international protection procedures, but rather aims to give an impression that can help to understand the context better. Views expressed are the ones from the interview partners and do not necessarily reflect those of the Austrian Red Cross / ACCORD or the University of Heidelberg.

You can find information intended to be used in protection procedures in our featured topic on the humanitarian situation in Somalia, in which we have included content from this conversation, in consultation with the expert.
