The newly independence nation of South Sudan displays all the telltale signs of the resource curse. Unless urgent measures are put in place to ensure greater transparency and accountability over the use of oil revenue, the economic crisis facing South Sudan may ultimately inflict as much damage on the young nation as the war itself, writes David K. Deng.

Land issues continue to arise as a source of instability in South Sudan. Although significant legislative reforms have been made since the end of the war in 2005, the laws remain largely unimplemented. Most land governance institutions operate according to procedures developed in the colonial era, and there is a wide divergence between law and practice.

In January, the Government of South Sudan announced the construction of an oil pipeline from South Sudan to the Kenyan port of Lamu. This was a decisive signal and a demonstration of the state's desire and intention of establishing a firm political autonomy.

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.
