Heritage Institute Report
Galkayo is the only divided city with two different administrations in Somalia. A peaceful solution to the Gaalkacyo conflict could contribute to a peaceful Somalia. Therefore, the careful study, analysis and peaceful resolution of this conflict should not be underestimated. If the conflict in Gaalkacyo continues while Somalia is experiencing a new governance model, this may set a bad precedent and other conflicts could be unfortunately Gaalkacyo-lized. Finding a solution to the Gaalkacyo crisis should be a top priority for Somalia’s upcoming federal leadership and the leadership of the two administrations.
