Report of the Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the Sudan

UN Human Rights Council, Mashood A. Baderin

This report from the UN Human Rights Council provides an appraisal of the human rights situation in the Sudan over the period October 2013 to July 2014. It provides an overview of the general human rights situation in the Sudan and outlines the major human rights challenges faced by the Government, describing the progress made in meeting these challenges.

Excessive and deadly: The use of force, detention and torture against protesters in Sudan

Amnesty International,

Truth and Dignity Commission

South Sudan Law Society, Deng

This paper from the South Sudan Law Society proposes the establishment of a truth commission to investigate and report on patterns of human rights abuses in South Sudan from 1972 to the present.

National dialogue in Sudan: experiences and challenges

Sudan Democracy First Group, El-Battahani

A number of broken peace agreements has driven Sudan into deep conflict, leading to the secession of South Sudan in 2011, and creating a crisis which still threatens the country with further violence and dismemberment. The country stands at a crossroads, and calls for change are coming from all quarters, even from inside the regime itself. Change seems to be the catchword for all actors, argues Atta El-Hassan El-Battahani.

From recovery and state building to a new humanitarian emergency

Secure Livelihoods Research Consortium, Maxwell & Santschi

This paper is intended as a brief reflection on the current situation in South Sudan. It outlines observations on the current situation, concludes with some reflections on the need for better information and analysis, and outlines a short-term research agenda.

From Liberation Movement to Government

The Brenthurst Foundation, Clapham

Independence struggles often promote the formation of an effective movement in opposition that should provide the basis for a viable government once victory is achieved. Nowhere in Africa, however, has a liberation movement transformed itself seamlessly into a national government.

Reforming the SPLM

Institute for Security Studies, Paula Cristina Roque

Transforming the ruling Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) is vital in achieving sustainable peace in South Sudan, argues Paula Cristina Roque. Transforming the SPLM entails ensuring that politics become demilitarised; party structures reach the grassroots; and decision-making rules and leadership succession processes are established

South Sudan's crisis

The Sudd Institute, Jok Madut Jok

This analysis from the Sudd Institute suggests that the stalemate in the peace process is costly, and that the solution to the current crisis lies with the warring parties, the South Sudanese citizenry, and the international community. It also argues that the peace process lacks genuine intent to end the conflict.

South Sudan's New War

Human Rights Watch

This report from Human Rights Watch documents how widespread killings of civilians, often based on their ethnicity, and mass destruction and looting of civilian property, have defined the conflict in South Dudan. It calls for a comprehensive arms embargo on South Sudan.

"The Price of Silence"

Amnesty International

The freedom of expression has been increasingly eroded in South Sudan since independence in 2011. In this report, Amnesty International describes how journalists have been harrassed, intimidated and arbitrarily detained by South Sudan's authorities, while the government has failed to pass key laws to protect freedom of expression.

South Sudan crisis - situation report

OCHA South Sudan

This report from OCHA provides an extensive update on the South Sudan crisis.

South Sudan's Crisis: Its Drivers, Key Players, and Post-conflict Prospects

The Sudd Institute

This analysis from the Sudd Institute argues that historical issues that remained unresolved after the CPA significantly compounded it. To end the crisis, it is strongly recommended that the international community exert pressure on the warring parties.

Local security arrangements in Greater Upper Nile

Small Arms Survey, HSBA

Much of the fighting in South Sudan has been concentrated in the Greater Upper Nile region. This brief from the Small Arms Survey discusses the organization of local security arrangements in the Greater Upper Nile and their impact on local security dynamics in the region.

Civil Society and the South Sudan Crisis

International Crisis Group, Jerôme Tubiana

The inclusion of civil society in efforts to defuse the South Sudan crisis has so far been fraught. In this blog post, Jerôme Tubiana at the International crisis group analyzes civil society's role in the South Sudan crisis.

The Impacts of Violence on Education in South Sudan

The Sudd Institute

This policy brief from the Sudd Institute analyzes the impacts of South Sudan's ongoing violence on education in the three states of Upper Nile. The report states that the war has led to pronounced reductions in educational activities and resources in the area, with school closure and mass outmigration as a result.

The Military Industry Corporation (MIC)

Small Arms Survey, HSBA

Sudan has become a significant arms manufacturer in Africa. This report from Small Arms Survey documents what is known about Sudan's Military Industry Corporation

Conflict, climate change and politics

HPG working paper, Levine, Peters &Fan

This working paper form ODI is based on analysis of three cases; Aceh, East Africa and Darfur. The three case studies show that, when disciplines are used techno-centrically and in the absence of sophisticated political analysis, there are significant risks that interventions designed to support resilience may do more harm than good.

Anyone who can carry a gun can go

PRIO paper, Breidlid and Arensen

This report from PRIO focuses on Nuer civilians who are fighting on the side of the SPLM/A-in-Opposition in the current civil war, popularly known as the White Army. There are many misconceptions about the White Army. It is not a single cohesive force, but comprises defense groups representing Nuer rural communities at various levels.

South Sudan-China Relations: A Reversed Courtship

Luka B. Deng Kuol

Given the enormous challenges facing Juba, South Sudan has to forge a new courtship in China. As part of its new diplomatic outreach, the Vice President will visit China towards the end of this month. As this visit has been cautiously arranged by Chinese Communist Party rather than by the Government of China, Juba will have an uphill task to be successful with its new courtship in China, writes Luka B. Deng Kuol.

A comprehensive peace agreement was signed between the Sudan government and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement in January 2005. The research and monitoring programme, which was submitted by CMI in cooperation with the University of Khartoum, Al Ahfad University for Women and PRIO, addresses main challenges to peacebuilding in Sudan, with a particular focus on (a) the political economy of the transition, including institutional and governance issues, and (b) the role of third party engagement and issues related to the management and coordination of aid. The programme is multidisciplinary and combines macro level studies with research in selected localities and states. It covers basic research, capacity building (primarily in Sudan) and policy oriented needs.

Allahu Akbar: A Friday in Khartoum
I am sipping to my coffee as I am listening to the local imam through the loudspeaker as he addresses his congregation inside the mosque.

Ikke mer fred å få
Ingen viktige fredsavtaler er inngått i verden de siste åtte årene. De fleste «intern-konflikter» er ikke det de gir seg ut for å være. De er deler av internasjonale konfliktsystemer der eksterne aktører spiller helt sentrale roller, skriver Gunnar M. Sørbø i en utenriksanalyse i Morgenbladet.
