HRDC Somalia

Rule of law

One critical constraint on the development of Somalia is the threat to peace, security and development on account of violent conflict, organized crime, and illegal networks permeating industry and politics. There is an urgent need to undertake evidence-based research on appropriate policy responses to such threats to the development of Somalia.

In a similar way, there is a need to define economic institutions to facilitate the functioning of markets in the development process of Somalia. This is an area that would need considerable empirical research on Somalia.
