Item description for Somalia: Diaspora and State Reconstitution in the Horn of Africa by Osman Farah A....

Since the final collapse of Somalia's repressive regime in 1991, Somalia has presented the world not only with the most profound case of state collapse witnessed in modern times but also with one of the most intriguing cases of political fragmentation, armed conflicts, lawlessness and statelessness. Inevitably the last 20 years of statelessness and chaos has left the Somali economy destitute and made Somalia to be ranked among the five poorest 'countries' in the world. Contributors to this volume examine efforts at reconstituting the failed Somali state and the role of the Somali Diaspora and civil society groups in the processes. They also analyse how the Somali Diaspora and civil society in Somalia engage and cooperate to further processes of state-reconstitution in Somalia as well as help the Somali Diaspora adjust in their host nations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Somalia: Diaspora and State Reconstitution in the Horn of Africa?

no happy ending  Oct 4, 2007
The unsettled saga of Somalia seems to bleed on and on. Been well over a decade of quasi-anarchy. And some observers would argue about the "quasi". Well, the book's contributors offer a 2007-written analysis of the present sorry situation.

An entire set of chapters deals with the ever-growing diaspora. Scattered from Finland to UK to US. I never even knew there were Somalis in Finland. But a chapter on this group explains how they are [more or less] settling in there.

The second part of the book discusses Somalia itself. Islamism is one issue. Another is the various external actors in the ongoing peace process. Somalia's neighbours naturally have an acute interest in influencing this process.

There is no happy ending to the book.
