Abstract

The self-declared state of Somaliland is much better known as a refugee producing territory than a refugee destination.Yet in recent years the territory has witnessed growing non-Somali immigration from the Oromo regions of Ethiopia.In the wake of marginalization and oppression in Ethiopia, these newcomers find a precarious refuge in Somaliland, demonstrating some of the challenges of in-region protection and integration in the Horn of Africa.
