South Sudan Dispute Resolution

The South Sudan Law Society (SSLS), a civil society organization based in Juba, published in March 2013 an extensive report titled "Challenges of Accountability: An Assessment of Dispute Resolution Processes in Rural South Sudan."  The author is David K. Deng.

The SSLS report concluded that South Sudan has not yet established a justice system that affords predictable and reliable legal protection for the poor and marginalized and meets the basic requirements for justice for its people.  To develop such a justice system, the government of South Sudan must overcome a number of challenges, including widespread impunity for inter-communal and politically motivated violence and pervasive injustices in the customary and statutory courts.
