Author: James Copnall Date Written: 27 August 2015
Primary Category: Sudan and South Sudan Document Origin: African arguments.
Secondary Category: Eastern Region Source URL: http://africanarguments.org
Key Words: South Sudan, IGAD, Kiir, Riek, peace agreement, doubts

Summary & Comment: "South Sudanís leaders have failed their country in its short life. But it is not too late for them to redeem themselves." Kiir has very serious doubts and reservations- probably felt forced into the agreement by IGAD+PLUS. Riek has less to lose. JK
2. Longer, analytical article. John Garang Remembered 10 Years On
Author: Mawan Muortat Date Written: 18 August 2015
Primary Category: Sudan and South Sudan Document Origin: African Arguments
Secondary Category: History Source URL: http://africanarguments.org
Key Words: John Garang, South Sudan, SPLM

Summary & Comment: John Garangís political and military abilities are rarely questioned, but the influences that led him to acquire and champion the political ideas that later set him apart from the other Sudanese leaders of his generation are poorly understood. MM
3. South Sudan: A Rain of Bombs in the Nuba Mountains
Author: Nicolas Kristoff Date Written: 20 June 2015
Primary Category: Sudan and South Sudan Document Origin: NY Times
Secondary Category: Youth & Children Source URL: http://www.nytimes.com/l
Key Words: Sudan; south Sudan, Nuba, bombing.

Summary & Comment: AS it has been for years, the Sudan government maintains low level warfare against the villagers in the Nuba mountains.

Key Words: South Sudan, food crisis, civil war, relief.

Summary & Comment: "There are now 2,5 m. people needing food badly - more than double the number of people who were experiencing this high level of food insecurity in December 2013, when the current conflict broke out, bringing the country once again to the brink of a major hunger crisis.

Author: International Crisis Group Date Written: 29 January 2015
Primary Category: Sudan and South Sudan Document Origin: ICG
Secondary Category: Eastern Region Source URL: http://www.crisisgroup.org
Key Words: Sudan, South Sudan , conflict, arms embargo

Summary & Comment: Intro and Exec summary of the New ICG report. The conflicts in Sudan and South Sudan are increasingly merged. Halting drift toward a Uganda-Sudan proxy war on the Sudan-South Sudan border requires better coordination by regional organisations and more engagement by influential outside powers, notably China and the U.S., including via the UN Securit . . .

Author: Editor Date Written: 6 January 2015
Primary Category: Sudan and South Sudan Document Origin: African Arguments
Secondary Category: Eastern Region Source URL: http://africanarguments.org
Key Words: South Sudan, IGAD, peace process, fighting,

Summary & Comment: Ongoing fighting makes negotiations difficult. But the lack of good will and a hard search for points of agreement mean that not enough serious talking has not been taking place. IGAD will come in again, and perhaps its the last chance for them; they are discouraged by lack of follow through. JK
