This chapter explores how the post-9/11 renaissance of counterinsurgency has allowed intervention actors to adapt to, and start to move beyond, the limits of conventional state centric stabilization, and instead target local actors and institutions. In zooming in on the case of Jubaland in the south of Somalia, the chapter trace the productive effects of “local track counterinsurgency” interventions, in terms of re-making and decentering sovereignty, and thereby contributing to new localized processes of self-styled “state formation”. This illustrates the profoundly ambiguous, indeed often contradictory, effects of post 9/11 security intervention on sovereignty and state-making.
