Development Cooperation in Somaliland: Working in a Precarious State

Development discourse frequently limits development cooperation within the boundaries of nation-states, yet this must be redressed as many countries in Africa are experiencing political instability and fragility. This paper is a case study on Somaliland, an internationally unrecognized state, founded in 1991 following the collapse of the federal government in Somalia.
