The Wilson Center in Washington published in March 2012 a paper titled "United We Stand, Divided We Fall:" The Sudans after the Split. The principal contributors are Alan Goulty, former UK ambassador to Sudan and former UK special representative to Sudan, and Nureldin Satti, former Sudanese diplomat and UNESCO employee. Goulty and Satti are co-chairs of the Sudan Working Group at the Wilson Center. Click here to read the report.
Goulty and Satti focus on recent developments in the aftermath of a messy divorce of Sudan and South Sudan. They discuss the conflicts in Abyei, South Kordofan and the Nuba Mountains, the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, North and South differences on oil revenue, internal political rivalry and governance issues, and the mindsets, beliefs and biases of the leadership in Sudan and South Sudan.
