The drift back to war: Insecurity and militarization in the Nuba Mountains

The Issue Brief examines insecurity and militarization in the Nuba Mountains and surrounding areas, a region that has been overshadowed in recent years by the Darfur conflict and, more recently, the insecurity in Abyei. It focuses on the eastern part of the region where political tensions have been high since the CPA: military observers in the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) peacekeeping force are insufficiently resourced and supported; there are no permanent UN civil affairs and human rights officers; and international NGOs and other independent observers are few.

This brief was originally published by the Small Arms Survey.
