Abstract [en]

Somalia is regarded as a failed state since its central government has been collapsed in the 1990s by clan-based armed functions. Since then, the country has struggled with political stability and social and economic development. There have been transformations, including peace and reconciliation conferences and decentralization processes with the help of the International Community and the United Nations. Somali society consists of ethnic clans, mainly divided into majority and minority. Most of the majority clans are those powerful and or armed clans. In contrast, minority clans are unarmed and work as unskilled laborers such as tailors, blacksmiths, and shoemakers. Somalia implemented a federal system using the 4.5 clan-based power-sharing formula in which minority clans did not get equal quotas.The research will answer our research queston of what are the benefits and drawbacks of the current Somali federal system for minority clans as seen through the lens of the minority government officials in Somalia.This research use the classical federal and social exclusion theories to analyze and describe the topic using qualitative data analysis. The study will be exploratory, in which I will conduct both primary and secondary data by having interviews (semi-structured) with the minority government workers at both federal and member state levels.
