The Eastern Front and the Struggle against Marginalisation

This publication examines the challenges in implementing the Eastern Sudan Peace Agreement signed by the Beja Congress and Sudanese government in 2006. The author draws a parallel between the peripherialisation of the residents in the eastern region that fuelled the conflict and the resource-​based conflicts in southern and western Sudan. The report concludes that while similarities exist between marginalised groups in Sudan, a political solution is more viable in the eastern region as the BC has made a transition from rebel group to political party.
