Somalis

In Search of Nationhood, Statehood and Transnational Connections

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportBogForskningpeer review

Resumé

Contemporary scholarship characterizes Somalia as a nation in search of statehood. The approach presupposes a homogenous cohesive nation and society- with considerable traditional democratic pastoralism. This book portrays a complex nation with multiple heterogeneous characteristics. This alternative approach reflects the socio-political and the historical formations, invention and possible reinvention of the society.

The book aims beyond the nation state-centric analysis. Issues discussed include:

· Conceptual socio-political transnational frame of development and statehood

· Analytical frames resting on diverse cases of emerging transnational civic connections

· Prospects for regional educational development

· Countering transnational precarity (employment and residence uncertainties), political mobilization and extremism

· Transnational efforts at state formation, power and justice
