the Customary Law of Conflict Resolution
In Mogadishu on August 15th, 2016, the FGS Ministry of Justice endorsed the implementation of the customary law of conflict resolution. Those taking part included traditional leaders, religious groups and representatives from the regional administrations. Customary law has significance for the Somali people who have suffered numerous atrocities during the long period of civil strife. Coming out of that chaos, customary law was the main way of solving conflicts among disagreeing elements. The Ministry of Justice has, therefore, acknowledged the accomplishments of customary law and expect that it will continue to play a substantial role in the creation social order for some time to come.
