This study sought to examine peacebuilding efforts in Somalia with a focus on Jubaland’s actors and their contribution to the success of the region’s peacebuilding efforts. The study employed primary and secondary data collection methods. Primary data was collected using key informant interviews while secondary data was collected from books, journal articles, reports, newspapers, bulletins as well as internet sources. Using the social contract approach., actors in the peace process in Jubaland sought to employ a bottom-up citizencentric approach to conflict resolution in a region that has known chaos for the better part of the last three decades. The study found that the successful formation of Jubaland had barred any other option of stabilizing Somalia save for the ‘building blocks’ approach. Additionally, by incorporating key actors such as the Federal Government of Somalia, the Jubaland Administration and Ahlu-SunnaWal-Jama (ASWJ); local actors such as the Council of Islamic Scholars (CIS), Clans and Clan Elders, and the Business Community; and regional and international actors such as Ethiopia andKenya, the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) and the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD),, Jubaland’s peace building efforts had all key players on board.
