Building from the Bottom:

Political accommodation in Somalia at the regional and local levels

This Briefing Note aims to assist policy makers, local leaders, and community groups in developing and implementing regional and local governance arrangements that can effectively reconcile competing political interests and perspectives. The Briefing Note provides tools, frameworks, and examples relevant to interactions between federal member states and the federal government, much of which remain undefined under the Provisional Constitution of the Federal Republic of Somalia.
