Sudan: Saving Peace in the East

This briefing details the low-intensity conflict developing between the government and the Eastern Front in the mid-2000s. It showed then how it risked becoming a major new war with disastrous humanitarian consequences once the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) withdrew from the area. However, it also outlined the opportunities for conflict actors and international partners to address the marginalisation and underdevelopment that still drives conflict in the East.

This briefing was originally published by the International Crisis Group.
