Somaliland: the country to invent

Indication of a diplomatic representation of Somaliland in Addis Abeba (Ethiopia).

If Somalia is sometimes mentionned into the medias because of war and famine, Somaliland – a territory between Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somalia- remains unknown.

Here are some articles published lately about this “grey zone” not recongnized as an independent state, but not considered as a part of Somalia.

As for a chronology of this so-called country; see by The Atlantic (US): https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2008/12/timeline-somalia-1991-2008/307190/

See this article from The Economist: https://www.economist.com/blogs/economist-explains/2015/11/economist-explains

Some articles about the current famine situation in some parts of the territory (like in South Sudan): https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2017/may/24/somaliland-hunger-crisis-world-doesnt-respond-until-children-are-dying-foreign-minister-saad-ali-shire

Ten years ago, the NYT did publish optimistic articles about the place: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/06/world/africa/06iht-somalia.4818753.html
