    Federalization of a failed state - short analysis of the Somali experiment
    in Cuadernos Manuel Giménez Abad , n. 5, junio ,  2013 ,  165-174
    This article is a contribution to the ongoing debate on the constitutional foundations under the Somali federalism. Its main objective is to provide information on current state of re-unification of the country as well as analysis of the political processes behind it. The adoption of the new constitution in August 2012 is rightly perceived as a milestone in the history of Somalia. Nonetheless, as any constitution of the federal state, it brings diverse ways of interpretation of basic principles referring to issues such as devolution and division of powers. It is also not clear on the crucial point: how the future federal state should be formed - through recognition of the existing self-governing autonomous states or rather the whole process needs to be centrally driven?
