We Need to Somali-Land On Our Feet: SNM Cabinet, Somaliland, 1991
Background Guide coming soon!
I am so excited to welcome you to Somaliland! I'm Chris Ojeda (he/him)! I am a senior studying Political Science with a minor in Public Policy. I'm going to be your chair for the SNM Cabinet, Republic of Somaliland, 1991 committee. I'm particularly excited to see how this committee unfolds, especially considering the government's lack of structure and resources. This committee starts at a critical moment in Somaliland's history, a fledgling state mired by issues non-unique to the region. Starting from near-to-nothing, I am interested in seeing how the committee deals with issues such as international recognition, insurgency, and political instability. Delegates have free reign to take Somaliland in whatever direction they choose, with the end goal of creating a solid foundation for the future of Somaliland.Best,
Chair, We Need to Somali-Land On Our Feet: SNM Cabinet, Somaliland, 1991
Jackson Englar-CarlsonCrisis Director
Welcome Delegates to the newly independent Somaliland! My name is Jackson Englar-Carlson (he/him), and I am excited to be your crisis director for the committee! I am a sophomore from Huntington Beach, California, double majoring in political science and public health, with a minor in public policy. Somaliland, after breaking free from Somalia in 1991, has been essentially an independent country though it isn’t recognized by almost all of the world’s nations. It has experienced immense instability despite its best efforts. I look forward to watching all of you build this country from the ground up, and sharing in the success (or the failure) of your efforts. When I'm not planning the birth of a new country, you can probably find me at some type of internship, exploring the Bay Area, or trying out a new restaurant (hit me up for recommendations if you need any)!Best,
Crisis Director, We Need to Somali-Land On Our Feet: SNM Cabinet, Somaliland, 1991
