Overcoming Diplomatic Isolation: Forging a New Somaliland Approach

Usually, when the international relations of Somaliland are studied, the focus does not extend beyond narrative diplomatic history and the careers of individual Somaliland statesmen. Indeed, ‘Somaliland diplomacy’, to many scholars, means no more than Somaliland foreign policy. However, though the state had a foreign policy right from the beginning, diplomacy developed very little until recently, and to the role of diplomacy as a domestic factor in the formulation of foreign policy remained of less significance or even missing.
