Somaliland President
Muse Bihi Abdi:

The Case for International Engagement


Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022, 10:00 - 11:00am EDT

1957 E Street NW, Washington, D.C. Lindner Family Commons (Room 602) and via Zoom

Note: Because of logistics constraints, in-person attendance is limited to member of the GW community. Members of the general public may view the event via Zoom.



Thirty years after it seceded from Somalia, the self-declared Republic of Somaliland enjoys a stable and largely democratic system of politics and a level of peace and stability that sits in stark contrast to its neighbors in the Horn of Africa. International recognition, however, despite the best efforts of successive governments, has so far been elusive. Join the GW Institute for African Studies, in partnership with the Onero Institute, for a discussion with Somaliland President H.E. Muse Bihi Abdi on Somaliland's political and economic progress and how regional geopolitics may be changing the prospects for international recognition and engagement.
