The Sentry, Enough Project
South Sudan's elites have built a kleptocratic regime that controls all sectors of the economy, and have squandered a historic chance for the development of a functional state, argues this report from the Sentry. These predatory economic networks play a central role in the current civil war, because much of the conflict is driven by elites attempting to re-negotiate their share of the politico-economic power balance through violence.

Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding, 8:4, Jairo Munive
Current practice for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) in South Sudan centres on ex-combatants' reintegration through encouraging entrepreneurship and selfemployment and thereby their willingness to take risks and responsibility.

Self-employment is the solution to the process of reintegration, empowerment and ultimately a key to statebuilding.

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.
