Publication 9: Expanding Justice to Marginalized Groups In Lower Shabelle

This study explores the problems facing ethnically marginalized groups in the Lower Shabelle region of the South West State of Somalia. It focuses on these groups because of their voicelessness within wider Somali society and the ethnicity-based social, political, economic and academic marginalization they undergo. The study highlights the nature of these problems, including aspects of persecution, inequality, injustice and confiscation of property. It reveals minorities’ lack of trust and confidence in government institutions to address the marginalization, inequality and injustice they encounter within society and discusses their preference for the international community to intervene and oversee any project aimed at curbing this problem. The study recommends for national institutions and international organizations to include in their national development programs specific agendas to expand minority groups’ access to equality and justice.
