A study contrasts the role donors play in Somalia and Somaliland

London (SD) – I Gordon Peake, an international author, discusses the issue of Somaliland’s quest for recognition and describes how the international community has focused on reviving a failed Somalia and has turned a blind eye to Somaliland.

A long article posted on his blog, Gordon Peake said that Somaliland, which has been overlooked by the international community, has done well without the support of the rest of the world.

The author states in his article that in the 1990s, when Somaliland began to regain its independence from Somalia, how it did not receive international support to rebuild itself. But at that same time, the United Nations were spending $ 4 billion on military operations aimed at rebuilding a shattered Somalia, while at the time the United Nations supported an estimated 0.0025% of the resources to Somaliland.

Gordon Peake, quoting and a book written by Sarah G. Phillips called “When There Was No Aid: War and Peace in Somaliland”, the book details how Somaliland has succeeded without any significant financial support from the international community.
