A race against time to halt Sudan’s collapse

This briefing regards the conflict in Sudan as of June 2023. The conflict began with a power struggle between the military and civilian leaders following the ousting of former President Omar al-Bashir. The Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a paramilitary group, has been accused of committing atrocities against civilians in Khartoum. The army has also bombed neighbourhoods in the city. The destruction of infrastructure has been extensive, and the situation has the potential to cause a humanitarian disaster in the Sudanese countryside. The briefing suggests that Sudanese civilians need to put political differences aside to agree on an interim arrangement for governing the country. The African Union and other international actors can play a role in supporting this process.
