The Small Arms Survey released in September 2009 a report titled "Skirting the Law: Sudan's Post-CPA Arms Flows." It was drafted by Mike Lewis and funded by a variety of countries and organizations including the governments of Norway, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and UK. This is the most extensive, recent study on the flow of arms to Sudan's Armed Forces, the Sudan People's Liberation Army and dissident groups in the region. For persons who follow the situation in Darfur and implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between northern and southern Sudan, it is essential reading. You can access it in PDF format here.
