What to do with Somalia?

Morten Bøås and Mohamed Husein Gaas

Fafo-paper 2012:02


The authors of this Fafo-paper argues for a new approach towards Somalia. Instead of focusing on everything that is wrong with Somalia we should ask what is working in Somalia. As the Somalis survive, Somalia must to some degree work, and indeed features a range of institutional responses that has resulted in the creation of new hybrid political orders.
