The Nexus of Corruption and Conflict in South Sudan

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.

The Many Faces of al-Bashir

Enough Project, Omer Ismail

Recent shifts in the politics of the Persian Gulf could benefit the ruling coterie in economically isolated and politically ostracized Sudan. These shifts dramatically alter Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir's view of his opportunities.

Invisible Labour: The Political Economy of Reintegration in South Sudan

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. This article by Jairo Munive argues that DDR interventions seldom capture the labour market experience of demobilized combatants. Self-employment is the solution to the process of reintegration, empowerment and ultimately a key to statebuilding.

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.
