The Republic of Somaliland is a sovereign state without international recognition in Eastern Africa. Internationally Somaliland is recognized as an autonomous region of the sovereign, but failed, state of Somalia.


Background

In May 1991, northern clans declared an independent Republic of Somaliland that now includes the administrative regions of Awdal, Woqooyi Galbeed, Togdheer, Sanaag, and Sool. Although not recognized by any government, this entity has maintained a stable existence and continues efforts to establish a constitutional democracy, including holding municipal, parliamentary, and presidential elections.[1]
