The U.S. military, in partnership with the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) troop and police contributing countries, allies, the African Union, and other international organizations are scheduled to conduct table top exercise Justified Accord 2017 (JA17), formerly known as Eastern accord, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, March 20-24.

JA17 is an AFRICOM-directed and U.S. Army Africa (USARAF)-led combined and joint exercise with approximately 100 military and government personnel participating from 10 nations.

This year's iteration will bring together African partners and allied nations in a classroom setting to discuss topics related to peacekeeping operations. This exercise will include structured vignettes and practical applications related to transitioning AMISOM to a Somali-led mission. The end goal of JA17 is to increase interoperability, to further relationships with partners in the region, and to build upon the plan for a more robust exercise for Justified Accord 2018.

Once the exercise is complete, all exercise participants will return to their home countries and stations.
