Historical Roots and Legacies of Somalia’s Current Governance Systems
Somalia’s current institutional structure and governance system is shaped by the pre-colonial and colonial legacies. The British And Italian administrations who administered the Italian Somaliland and British protectorate before the independence in 1960 established systems that are still evident in Somalia public institutions. The Soviet Union, Egypt, the USA and other countries who supported Somalia’s security institutions, education and other sectors also left legacies in Somalia’s public sector.
In this podcast, Professor Lee Cassanelli who wrote several history books about Somalia and Mahad Wasuge discuss the historical legacy of Somalia’s current governance systems.
