Maintaining peace in Sudan

Yesterday, a wide range of interest groups published a balanced analysis of what is required to ensure peace in Sudan with the fast approaching deadline for the referendum in southern Sudan on unity or independence.

The report (PDF) covers all the key issues and emphasizes that it is important not to lose sight of the situation in Darfur.

It argues that an equitable agreement on sharing oil revenue between northern and southern Sudan may be the single most important factor that will ensure peace or a return to conflict. I would agree.
