Somalia: Transition Games

By: Dr. Michael A. Weinstein

Through the end of March and into April, the “transition” of Somalia’s internationally recognized Transitional Federal Institutions (T.F.I.s) to a permanent constitutional arrangement continued to be delayed and promised to be so for the foreseeable future.

The cause of the delay has been a power struggle over control of the transition and the direction that it should take, between the United States working through the United Nations, and the T.F.I.s (presidency, government, and parliament) supported by Ethiopia working through the sub-regional Horn of Africa organization the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (I.G.A.D.)
