Internationellt erkännande: En studie utifrån Syd Sudan och Somalilands självständighetssökande
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The intention of this study is to investigate why some regions, which choose to secede from their parent country, are internationally recognized and others are not. The case studies of this study are South Sudan and Somaliland. South Sudan is as of now the world’s newest state, and Somaliland is a break-away state that is considered a part of Somalia by the International community. There are conditions that have to be fulfilled, before existing nations recognize the break-away state, such as an agreement between the seceded state and the parent country, which was the case for South Sudan and Sudan. Somaliland, on the other hand, has yet not been recognized despite its search for recognition for 23 years. Somaliland was declared independent, in 1991, after fall of Siad Barre’s regime. However, due to the current state of Somalia and its inability to form a working government, it is difficult for Somaliland to reach an agreement of possible sovereignty with Somalia. This study is a comparative case study and by using theories concerning secession, the idea is to draw a conclusion regarding the conditions of international recognition.
