Abstract:     
Since its declaration of independence in 1991, Somaliland has transitioned from a post-conflict society to a stable and relatively democratic state. Despite its stability – a stark contrast to its neighbor, Somalia – the Republic of Somaliland has received recognition from no other state. However, Somaliland’s declaration of independence and its emergence as an independent state conform with international norms of statehood, dissolution, recognition, and uti possidetis. This Comment argues that Somaliland should be recognized.
