Southern Sudan at Odds With Itself: Dynamics of Conflict & Predicaments of Peace
With Sudan’s elections over, this is the moment to refocus on challenges that lie ahead for Southern Sudan in the coming few months. The tremendous task of conducting elections as part of what was agreed in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) has placed an emphasis on technical aspects and shortcomings of that process.
