Abstract:

The study explored the implementation of the Somali government's restructuring programs and their impacts on state stability within the period of 2009-2019. The study was mainly guided by three research questions and objectives. The research questions included: To what extent has federalization program led to state stability? To what extent has national security reform programs led to state stability? And to what extent has national reconciliation programs led to state stability? The study reviewed literature on the three research questions on the stabilization component and adopted the Social contract Theory and Institutional Theory to contextualize the issues under study. The research relied on quantitative data thus collected primary data using structured questionnaire sent to respondents in Somalia who included lawmakers and government staff. The data was collected via email and Survey Monkey necessitated by the COVID-19 Pandemic. The data was analyzed using the SPSS data analysis tool. The findings revealed that the issues of federalism, national security, and reconciliation have an overlapping impact on Somalia's state stability. Hence data shows a significant lapse in one area, leads to slow progress in stabilizing the country. The findings show that the Somali federal system has led to stability and enhanced the prospects of state-building and promoted development and service delivery. Furthermore, the data shows that federalism brought clan rivalry, hatred and political Stability in Somalia. On the issues of security, the findings indicate the security forces made gains against terrorist groups. However, there is slow progress in reintegrating clan militia into the national and regional forces. Regarding national reconciliation the efforts have not yielded significant results in achieving truth justice and cohesion. The results indicate that reconciliation efforts did not help the safe return of IDPs and refugees.
