Security Sector Reform Monitor: Southern Sudan No. 3

The Security Sector Reform Monitor is a quarterly publication that tracks developments and trends in the ongoing security sector reform (SSR) processes of five countries: Afghanistan, Burundi, Timor-Leste, Haiti and Southern Sudan. The third edition of the Security Sector Reform Monitor: Southern Sudan examines the endemic corruption that has emerged in Southern Sudan after a prolonged civil war. In contrast to the many researchers who claim that corruption is embedded in Sudanese society, this edition of the Monitor suggests that the situation in Southern Sudan is a result of the creation of an entirely new government and a lack of adequate mechanisms for economic governance and accountability.
