Mapping Sources of Conflict and Insecurity in South Sudan

Date: 12 January 2013

Location: Home and Away

Organizer: The Sudd Institute

 

After attaining independence over a year ago from Sudan, the newly established Republic of South Sudan faces a myriad challenges, which include insecurity and unresolved post-independent issues with its northern neighbor. The Sudd Institute’s special report titled “Insecurity in South Sudan: Living in Fear under a Newly Won Freedom” maps out the sources of conflict and insecurity and suggests specific policy recommendations that should be undertaken to strengthen security situation across the young republic. 

 

The discussion extends beyond internal sources of insecurity to legacy of past and continuing antagonistic relations between South Sudan and Sudan. Author, Jok Madut Jok, examines the role ethnic relations, urban crime, and security agencies play on security.
