Morten Boas and Mohamed Husein Gaas released in February 2012 a brief paper titled What To Do with Somalia? on the Fafo website. Fafo was founded by the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions. It is an independent and multidisciplinary research foundation focusing on social welfare and trade policy, labor and living conditions, public health, migration, transnational security, and development issues.
Boas and Gaas wrote their piece in advance of the 23 February conference on Somalia in London. They make the argument for a decentralized approach to state building in Somalia.
