Abstract: The purpose of this article is to critically examine Somaliland’s post-conflict education reconstruction. The work includes documentary analysis of the Somaliland Education Policy. It is argued that the policy text analyses indicate and favour an enterpriseoriented education ideology. This emphasises competitiveness in market environments both nationally and individually. Educational ideologies are closely related to political ideologies. The authors argue that since the collapse of the socialist government of Somalia in 1990, Somaliland has developed a new political ideology strongly informed by neo-liberal views. This research attributes the development of new education and political ideologies to the significant local-national and global interactions between the local education stakeholders, the Somaliland diaspora community and international nongovernmental organisations (INGOs) that support the education sector.
Qoraalkani wuxuu baarayaa habka dibudhiska waxbarashada Somaliland, dagaalka kaddib.
Lo scopo di questo articolo è esaminare in modo critico la ricostruzione dell'istruzione in Somaliland nel dopoguerra. Il lavoro include un'analisi dei documenti dell'Education Policy del Somaliland. Si afferma che le analisi dei documenti indicano e favoriscono un'ideologia educativa orientata all'impresa. Questo enfatizza la competività nei mercati nazionali e individuali. Le ideologie educative sono strettamente correlate con le ideologie politiche. L'autore sostiene che a partire dal crollo del governo socialista della Somalia nel 1990, il Somaliland ha sviluppato una nuova ideologia politica basata su idee neo-liberali. Questa ricerca attribuisce lo sviluppo delle nuove ideologie educative e politiche alle significative interazioni local-nazionali e globali tra gli stakeholder, la comunità somala emigrata e le organizzazioni non-governative internazionali che supportano il settore educativo.
