Somalia’s Volatile Politics and the Ethics of Engagement Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

The case carries its parallel case, "Al-Shabaab, Gatekeepers, as well as the Ethics of Humanitarian Aid" (ETH 1), from the degree of individual-within-organization to the level of organization-within-political system. The desperate requirement for humanitarian assistance to Somalia's hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons (IDPs) was confounded by the presence of a government that appeared hopelessly poor.

Weak governmental associations created a power vacuum largely filled by Al-Shabaab, a jihadist group with geopolitical and spiritual ambitions. The circumstances insisted on by Al Shabaab gatekeepers and their senior leaders (shura) resulted in the eviction of several NGOs from Somalia. Their averse exit made many other humanitarian aid organizations to chew over whether "negotiatiation with terrorists" was worth it when such discussions prolong the system of corruption, oppression, and physical danger.
