Back to our communities in quest for federation in South Sudan

Cde Acuil Malith Banggol

For South Sudan the chance for unity in diversity was demonstrated during the liberation war and especially with Referendum results. We could unite. But what is the agenda around which to unite? Is it power sharing or looting sharing, asks Cde Acuil Malith Banggol.

The return of former political detainees from Kenya to consult with the President of South Sudan, and their planned trip to Pagak in Upper Nile to meet with the leadership of the armed opposition, all with a view to settling the country's 18-month conflict, have spurred debates in the country, writes Jok Madut Jok.

Reforming government structures and politics (in Arabic)

Sudan Democracy First Group, Professor al-Tayib Zain al-Abdien Mohamed

In this report, Sudan Democracy First Group introduces the idea of institutional reform in the key political, economic, legal and security organs of the State.

Shifting the donor narrative in South Sudan

Clingendael's Conflict Research Unit (CRU), Hemmer & Grinstead

The crisis in South Sudan calls for a critical reflection on past and forthcoming aid practices in the country, and on the assumptions and ambitions that underpin them.

The Many Faces of al-Bashir

Enough Project, Omer Ismail

Darfur's deepening conflict

IRIN, Stephen Graham

Violence in Sudan's Darfur has surged to levels not seen in a decade, with more than 150,000 people driven from their homes this year alone. The region's long-suffering residents are also bearing the brunt of a measles epidemic. It is a conflict to which the international community appears to have no answer and which risks being overshadowed by other crises in East Africa and beyond. The humanitarian and security challenges are vast, writes Stephen Graham.

Investing in Human Capital: Putting our Money Behind Our Words

Oil and Sustainable Peace in South Sudan

South Sudan Law Society, Deng

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.

National Reconciliation in South Sudan

The Sudd Institute policy brief, Jok Madut Jok

South Sudan needs a robust and comprehensive program of communal reconciliation, a project that confronts head-on the history of violence, its drivers, issues of justice and accountability, all politically and financially supported by the state but not singularly driven by them, argues Jok Madut Jok in this policy brief from the Sudd Institute.

Lessons from International Engagement with South Sudan 2011- 2014

All Party Parliamentary Group for Sudan and South Sudan

The responsibility for South Sudan's current state of conflict must ultimately lie with the country's political leadership.

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.
