Williams, associate professor of international affairs at George Washington University, is the author of a piece titled "AMISOM in Transition: The Future of the African Union Mission in Somalia." Published on 13 February 2013 by the Rift Valley Institute in Nairobi, Kenya, it takes a critical look at where the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) should go from here.

The author made the following key points:

--AMISOM is in need of a new mandate to enable it to support the new Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and its vision of security across the country.

--This mandate will need to be agreed between the African Union, United Nations, and the FGS.
