Somalia has an emblematic role to play in any attempt to understand the refugee crisis today. Over a million Somalians have been internally displaced and a further million have found refuge in neighbouring countries or in Europe. It has also become a place of welcome with over 30,000 Yemenites arriving. The climate of terror, the corrupt state administration, the formation of armed clan groups are all contributing factors to the disease that has been devouring Somalia for decades.
