Abstract

A British protectorate since the late 19th century, Somaliland became independent on June 6, 1960, before it merged with the Italian Somalia on July 1 in the same year. Despite the unification of the two territories within a British one, a coup attempt took place in 1961. From 1969, when Siad Barre came to power, until 1991, the former protectorate’s political life was pratically absent. People’s dissatisfaction kept rising, all the more so as clan-based families who led a pastural life in the North were hostile to their southern counterparts, whose economy was based on agriculture. Somaliland self-proclaimed itself independent. It became a state but it has not yet obtained international recognition.
