From the Global Post: “Lessons from Somaliland”

I thought this was a good “Africa Dispatch” from Stephanie Hanson in the Global Post, appropriately emphasizing the importance to Somaliland’s political progress in recent years of limited international involvement due to the lack of recognition. At the same time, it should be recognized that multinational support for the electoral process has been valuable, and that remittances from the diaspora, earned in the global economy, have been crucial. Finding creative ways to support economic growth while the logjam remains on recognition seems to me to be the least that the international community could do now.
