Sudan, South Sudan and Abyei

The Sudd Institute, an independent research organization based in Juba, published on 29 October 2013 an analysis titled "Abyei Final Status: A Mismanaged and Unyielding Stalemate" by Zacharia Diing Akol, director of training at the Sudd Institute. 

The analysis concludes that the only way to break the deadlock over Abyei is for the African Union and especially the AU Peace and Security Council to endorse the proposal of the AU High Level Implementation Panel, which is under the chairmanship of former South African president Thabo Mbeki.  This proposal called for the long-delayed referendum on the future of Abyei to take place in October 2013.
