The Assisting Regional Universities in Sudan (ARUS) is a collaboration between CMI, the University of Bergen and national and regional universities in Sudan. The programme aims to strengthen the competencies of regional universities to conduct high quality research on development challenges and based on such research target stakeholders to propose policy changes. As part of the program, research is carried our on a range of topics of relevance for Sudan’s transitional government, including gender equality and women’s empowerment, youth mobilization, refugees, border control and human trafficking, food security and urbanization.  Hosted by Ahfad University for Women, the ARUS programme targets seven universities which have historically been politically, culturally and economically marginalized. These include: Nyala, Red Sea, Kassala, Gedarif, Diling , Sennar and Blue Nile. The ARUS programme is funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Khartoum for the period 2018-2022.
