b. To evaluate the pastoral policies of Somali govemments and to what extent it changed the pastoral system of production ; c. To investigate and develop an explanation for why Somali govemments continue to pursue settlement policies, even though : • the majority of the population are nomads and resist sedentarization ; • it is not ecologically, politically, and economically viable ; • the state elite itself has a pastoralist background and engaged one way or another in nomadic system of life, and as such would be expected to be against settlement ;
