Somalia's Federal Future

Chatham House published on 2 September 2015 a research paper titled "Somalia's Federal Future: Layered Agendas, Risks, and Opportunities" by Jason Mosley.

The desire for direct elections in Somalia in 2016 is yielding to the reality there is insufficient time or political will to establish the required legislative and institutional frameworks.  Pressure is mounting to develop an acceptable alternative mechanism in the time remaining.  As federal institution-building continues in Somalia, respect for minority and smaller clans within the process of member state formation will be essential to ensuring stability according to the author.
