Peacebuilding in Sudan: Micro- Macro Issues

The Road Back from Abyei

Douglas H. Johnson (2011)

The recent interventions of US government mediators have made a resolution less, rather than more likely.

Abyei has proved to be the hardest part of Sudan's Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) to implement, harder, even, than the determination of the rest of the North-South boundary, or the division of oil revenues. In this personal commentary Douglas Johnson argues that this is the result of a long-term aim of annexation by successive national governments in Khartoum. The recent interventions of US government mediators have made a resolution less, rather than more likely. For sustainable peace there needs to be a recognition of the root causes of the conflict and full implementation of the intent of the Abyei Protocol of the CPA.

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.
