About Us

Somaliland Focus (UK) was established in London in 2005 by a group of individuals with an interest in Somaliland.  Founding members included a number who had worked as international election observers at the parliamentary elections held on 29 September, 2005, as well as members of the Somaliland diaspora in the UK, and others with an interest in the territory. In June 2010, Somaliland Focus (UK) participated in the international election observation mission to Somaliland’s second-ever presidential elections, held on 26 June 2010.

Our aim is to raise awareness amongst decision-makers in the UK and elsewhere about the territory of Somaliland.  We will do this through a combination of irregular public and private meetings and other activities.  We do not aim to attract public membership, but are open to the active involvement of those with an interest in Somaliland.
