Governance in Somaliland

The Africa Research Institute (ARI), an independent, non-partisan think tank based in London, published in May 2013 a paper titled "After Borama: Consensus, Representation and Parliament in Somaliland."

ARI interviewed ten prominent Somalilanders, including the three speakers of the House of Representatives, two government ministers, MPs, civil society activists and representatives of women's organizations.  The conversations focus on the way in which political stability has been secured in the two decades since the landmark 1993 Conference of Elders took place in Borama.  Controversial issues such as clan politics and the concentration of power, the campaign to secure a role for women in politics, the consequences of the lack of voter registration, the future role of the House of Elders, and the conduct of international donors are covered.
