Peacebuilding in Sudan: Micro- Macro Issues

War and women in the Sudan: Role change and adjustment to new responsibilities

Julia A. Duany and Wal Duany, Northeast African Studies, Vol. 8, No. 2 (New Series) 2001, pp. 35-62 (available from the CMI Library)

Sudanese women argue that they have become a lifeline for family survival. Men, on the other hand, claim that providing for the family is primarily their duty, while women are merely their helpers. The reality is that in South Sudan women head two out of five households. Every family has lost at least one member, usually a husband or older brother. This has left a vacuum in terms of family support, and many Sudanese women have acquired a new role in becoming sole provider for their household. By Julia A. Duany and Wal Duany, Northeast African Studies, Vol. 8, No. 2 (New Series) 2001, pp. 35-62. Available from the CMI Library

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.
