Abstract: Can informal ‘traditional’ institutions help to build more legitimate, accountable and efficient states and governance? This article aims to contribute to that emerging discussion by unraveling the story of ‘Somaliland’, a self-declared independent republic which seceded from civil warridden Somalia in 1991. Somaliland started out as a clan-based politico-institutional arrangement, with an important role for ‘traditional’ clan leaders, albeit in a ‘modern’ framework: a ‘state’. The article examines the dynamic between the ‘modern’ and ‘traditional’ components and the evolution it underwent from Somaliland’s declaration of independence in 1991 to 2007.
Maqaalkaani wuxuu ka hadlayaa taariikhda gooni isutaagga Somaliland, oo dadkeeda ay samaysteen dawlad ku salaysan nidaamka caalamiga iyo midka hiddaha iyo dhaqanka oo lays qabadsiiyey, horumar la taaban karana ay muujiyeen.
Possono le istituzioni "tradizionali" informali aiutare a costruire stati e governi più efficienti, legittimi e responsabili? Questo articolo mira a contribuire a questa discussione emergente, svelando la storia del "Somaliland", una repubblica autodichiaratasi indipendente separandosi da una Somalia oppressa dalla guerra nel 1991. Il Somaliland inziò un arrangiamento politico-istituzionale basato sui clan, ma nel quadro di uno stato moderno: l'articolo esamina le dinamiche tra le componenti "moderne" e quelle "tradizionali" e l'evoluzione seguita alla dichiarazione di indipendenza del Somaliland dal 1991 al 2007.
