Narrativas alternativas sobre o conflito somali: descontinuidades e especifidades históricas

  • Marta Moreno


Este artigo tem como objetivo central o combate ao discurso hegemônico ocidental, devido ao seu determinismo histórico, sobre a Somália. O trabalho busca, desta forma, demonstrar como os interesses políticos subjazem a compreensão ocidental da Somália e como este não é fixo. Outra finalidade da pesquisa seria desvendar as características do conflito somali levando em consideração as influências externas.
