Small Arms Survey, HSBA
This is a detailed report on the current political and security situation in the disputed region. The former South Sudanese co-chair of the AJOC, Edward Lino, has joined the SPLM-IO; Abyei will not participate in either the Sudanese or South Sudanese elections; a series of high-level dismissals during the last year has weakened the Ngok Dinka's position in the SPLM; and the Missiriya migration is in full-swing, with UNISFA effectively acting as bodyguards in the north of Abyei.
