Abstract

I have used diaspora theory with a sociological perspective. This perspective has given insight to the importance that a diaspora community can play in conflicts in their country of origin while they are absent. My main research question is: What roles do Somali traders in Dubai play in the Somali clan conflict? My material consists of interviews with three Somali Diaspora traders in Dubai. The aim of this study is to examine how they are involved in the clan conflict in Somalia through their trading activities. Questions have been asked about which precautions that must be taken in order to export and import to/from a country ridden by conflict. Their answers showed that they were dependent on their clan in order to secure their products and, thereby, they were forced to be involved in the conflict in different ways. A reciprocal relationship evolved since also their clans in Somalia became dependent on the traders in Dubai for their position in the conflict. Regarding.
