Abstract:This paper analyses Somalia's situation using a geo-political perspective to offer an explanation and solution to this country's troubles. After a summary of what the situation is in Somalia and a review of literature, the paper discusses a factor of Somalia's instability which has not yet been sufficiently addressed in the existing literature. The author argues that the region is comprised of many weak and failing states, and proposes to conceptualize the Somali problem within this regional context of fragile states. He introduces a three-step model to explain the impasse in Somalia, a model premised on a geo-political perspective and informed by complexity theory and leadership theory. Bibliogr., notes.
