Abstract:Partition by France, Britain, Italy and Ethiopia divided the ethnic and cultural unit into five separate pieces: French Somaliland, the Haud and Ogaden regions of Ethiopia, British Somaliland, Italian Somalia, and the Northern Region of Kenya. Today both within the Somali Republic and outside it there is a continued pressure for the eventual full translation of Somali ethnic nationalism into statehood. The author examines the implications of this situation, especially with regard to the internal situation within French Somaliland, to the coming referendum there in March 1967, and to its external ties with neighbouring states, in the first place with Ethiopia, which is deeply concerned in French Somaliland.
