Skirting the Law: Sudan’s Post-CPA Arms Flows

On the basis of interviews, customs and trade data, original documentation, published reports, and evidence from photographs and satellite imagery, and by focusing on specific case studies, this Working Paper provides a snapshot of what is known about arms transfers to Sudan’s state forces since the signing of the CPA, as well as the distribution and circulation of weapons to nonstate armed groups. It argues that arms flows to and within Sudan remain substantially characterized by patterns, actors, and methods established during the second Sudanese civil war.

This paper was originally published by the Small Arms Survey.
