||Faculty of Law, Keio University
||I specialize in international politics and African modern politics. I have researched and mainly studied civil wars, ethnic conflicts, refugees, and internally displaced people’s issues in the Horn of Africa region in East Africa. At the same time, I am presently focusing on child soldiers and pirates who play main roles in conflicts, crime, and security issues. I am considering the measures and challenges to prevent conflicts and crimes at community, national, regional, and international levels by conducting research on background and causes among the conflicting parties.
