Wadankii ugu dhaqaale korniinka badnaa dunidu wuu bukoonaya. Waxa halis ku jira jiritaankiisii, duniduna farta ayey wadnaha ku haysaa. Afartii sanno ee la soo dhaafay, Itoobiya waxa lugaha ugu duubmay maro-boob siyaasadeed iyo mid amni-darro. Sumcaddii diblumaasiyadeed ee ay dunida iyo Afrikaba ku lahayd baa dhaawac la gaadhsiiyey. Dhaqaalahoodii culays weyn baa soo foodsaaray, waxaan hoos u sii dhacaya dhaqdhaqaaqyadii ganacsi iyo maalgeshigii shisheeyaha, taas oo keentay in heerka shaqo la’aantu si xawli ah sarre ugu kaco.

Are state institutions relevant to the politics of the poor?

In the developing world, more than a third of their urban populations live in areas where the social amenities such as water, healthcare, housing and education are desperately needed. Therefore, the state institutions and their policies– whether or not supported by aid agencies and development banks – need to work harder in addressing these problems. But for many scholars, the attention does not only focus on the role of state institutions or international NGOs but the part of the poor groups themselves. This is because the traditional state-managed approaches to poverty alleviation have not fully met the demands of a vast majority of the urban population. Read More


‘Everyday resistance’: Poor People’s Politics

‘Poor people’, though contribute to the vast majority of the developing world, their role in shaping the political dramas [within state] is always over-looked.  They hardly get noticed in the political spectrum. Not because they do not participate in the political exercises but their representation as ‘poor people’ is significantly underestimated in many parts of the Global South. With this in mind, James Scott introduced a theoretical concept ‘everyday resistance’ in 1985, to study how people act in their everyday lives in ways that might undermine power which is typically hidden, individual and not politically articulated.

New Social Movements: Do they defend poor people’s interests? 

On responding to the above question, I first need to make a clear distinction between the ‘new’ and ‘old’ social movements (NSMs). New Social Movements, in the words of Hallsworth (1994), ‘pose new challenges to the established, cultural, economic and political orders’. They are purposeful, organised groups determined to work toward a common objective. Their primary aims are to create and/or resist change as well as provide a political voice to those otherwise disenfranchised. Therefore, this means that they do not primarily focus on specific groups within a society but rather are issue-based movements. Whoever shares the same plight or suffering and are marginalised, may cooperate and take action together by challenging the issues that are desperately affecting their lives. Read More


Hal Dawlad, Hal Cod

Midkeena keligii kuma noola ‘meere’ u gaar ah. Waayo waxa aynu nahay bulsho dareen-wadaag ah oo is-huran, kunna qasban in ay wada-xidhiidh yeelato. Sow hore looguma maahmaahin, ‘war la helyaaba, tallo la hel.’

Hadaba, waxa aan uga gol-leeyahay qoraalkan in aan qeexid kooban ka bixiyo muhiimadda Wada-Xidhiidhka Dawladda. Wada-Xidhiidhka Dawladdu waa mid laba geesood ah- dawladda iyo shacabkeeda. Ula-jeedada laga leeyahay waa in ay dawladdu si faahfaahsan ugu gudbiso muwaadiniinta xogta ku saabsan waxqabadkeeda, siyaasadeheeda iyo hiigsigeedaba. Waa astaan muujinaysa maamul wanaag, kanna turjumaysa dastuurkeena ku dhisan nidaamka dimquraadiyadeed. Read More



Gelbiskii Geerida- Q12aad

Abshir waxa uu toosay inyar ka hore hiirtii waaberi. Dhaxan daran baa jirtay oo qofka u diidaysay in uu weysaysto, waa se uu ku qasbanaa in uu si uun maaro ugu helo. Laba rakacdood oo sunne ah ayuu ku tukaday mawlac ku dhex yiil xerada uu ku noola. Dabadeedna salaaddii subax buu ku xigsiiyey markii ay jamaacadii soo buuxsantay.

Mawlicii buu ku sii negaa oo uu ku akhrisanayey adkaar badan iyo aayado quraan ah ilaa diiggu cidii joojiyey. Abu-Xasna oo qori AK-47 ah xanbaarsan ayaa soo is-taagay afaafka hore ee mawlaca uu Abshir ku cibaadaysanayey. Suul-dhabaale ayuu ku soo jeediyey Abshir oo qushuuc la gadhoodhsan. Read More
