The Sudan–IGAD Peace Process Signposts for the Way Forward

“The paper will begin with a brief overview of the various peace processes that have been taken up during the two decades of Sudan’s civil war, culminating in the success of the IGAD Initiative. This serves to identify the key issues that have been
considered by peace-makers, the problems
encountered, the critical components of the IGAD achievement,and against this background suggest the issues that remain to be confronted. In addition, this overview will illustrate the diverging and sometimes
conflicting interests of the large number of individuals, organisations and governments that have taken up peace-making in Sudan and make clear that many of those conflicting interests will continue into the postconflict
transitional period, and must be resolved.”
