Abstract:This special issue of the 'Journal of Eastern African Studies' brings together 9 articles exploring different perspectives from social anthropology, history, political science and development studies on the effect of 'statelessness' in Somalia since 1991. It is an attempt to account more systematically for (potential) structural transformations in Somali society in the face of protracted war and state collapse. It looks into political, legal, social and economic dynamics and asks how far Somali ingenuity provided solutions for problems caused by the absence of overarching, stable and effective government structures. The special issue also includes an obituary for anthropologist and Somali specialist Virginia Luling (1939-2013). Contributors: Markus Virgil Hoehne, Dominik Balthasar, Nicole Stremlau, GŁnther Schlee, Jutta Bakonyi, Anna Lindley, Mohamed H. Ingiriis, Neil Carrier, Emma Lochery and Jatin Dua.
