Recently I watched a video by Mohamed Ali called Unemployment and Terrorism. His observations took place in Mogadishu, which is the capital of Somalia. He was studying the social lives of young adults in Mogadishu going through a time where there are limited job opportunities. According to the video by Ali, there is a link between young adults with no jobs to joining in terrorist groups and behaviors. These young adults cannot work because there are no jobs available too them, with or without a college degree. They are in a state of waithood, where there is nearly nothing for them. This state of being puts these young people in a vulnerable state where they need to find something they can do to not be in a constant state of waithood. When there are no opportunities for jobs people turn to doing bad instead of good. This is were terrorist groups come into play. They see these people with nothing to do and they pursued them into their group, giving them a place to be or something to do. Much like the boy Ali talks about in the beginning of the video, Where he moved from home to find work in a bigger city but when he arrived he found nothing and had to live in a tent community. Until a group came in and took interest in him and his life. They provide him with money, a wife, and a purpose in life. This is what all these young adults are trying to find, a purpose, so when there are no opportunities available for them, they are willing to take anything that comes up so they can start to provide for themselves and their families. Ali’s solution to this issue was to teach people in this waithood state how to be entrepreneurs. So he went to Mogadishu and taught a class for the young adults so they would get out of this pattern of life that is occuring. They need to be actively creating jobs for themselves to avoid this state of living. He learned their stories and what they are doing for themselves, what jobs they are creating to support a better life. They need to be taught entrepreneurship so they can do good for the world and create a good life for themselves.
