Qur'anic pre-primary education as a political proxy? The role of educational services in reinforcing domestic support for the Somali Jihad

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Much informal dialog has placed education as a high commodity for development. However, most literature frames education as development as creating educational communities that aim to promote a universalist form of education. Yet, it is entirely plausible to assert that education can often serve as a proverbial political battlefield, where policies are developed not in the interest of education, but rather, to further solidify growing political factions. This project will highlight this concept as it relates to Somalia, where the political landscape has become sincerely fragmented in the last few decades. While northern Somalia has enjoyed a relatively stable pattern of development as they align their political and educational agendas with Western-friendly neighbors, southern Somalia is seeing an influx in support for militant Islamist group al-Shabaab, a group that aims to promote totalitarian rule derived from the concept of a true Islamic state. Local support for al-Shabaab has been spurred in-part by the group’s ability to provide social services to the public. Subsequently, it is critical to examine the types of services offered and probe to see if such services are merely a guise for political perpetuation. This project will focus on elucidating the role of Qur’anic pre-primary education to strengthen the political success of jihadist ideology in Somalia. It will examine the basis and processes of the Qur’anic method, it’s espousing of reformist Islamic values, and how such values connect to militant Islam and jihadist faction al-Shabaab.
