Somalia has entered a new era in its contemporary history, which has taken on a regrettable and destructive character in the areas of security, peace and stability 1991 after collapse of Somali. Therefore. This research examines whether the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) has met its current strategic objectives and, if so, what impact it has had on Somalia’s broader political and security dynamics. The organization is now in its eleventh year of operation. AMISOM is one of a larger group of international actors attempting to restore stability to the country. This constellation highlights the benefits and drawbacks of collaborations in modern peacekeeping missions. It also emphasizes the importance of good coordination among various actors, particularly the Somali government, the African Union (AU), the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), and some major bilateral partners, such as the United States and the United Kingdom. As a result, AMISOM is in an unfortunate position. This study will use the quantitative method of information conducted in the literature review and further discussion with Somali government officials Amisom and the other experts. Amongst the techniques that will be used in this study, will be the purposive sampling technique which will allow the researcher to select certain respondents according to their ability to give information. Therefore, the key informants will be purposively selected from various officials. The study will collect both primary and secondary data. Before conducting these interviews, the researcher will have to design an interview guide that will be used in directing the conversation towards the topic and issues involved in this research. The results will be presented in a Microsoft word document.
