South Sudan: No Power-Sharing without Political Reform

The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) reprinted a two-part analysis from Uganda's New Vision titled "South Sudan: No Power-sharing without Political Reform" by Mahmood Mamdani, director of the Makerere Institute of Social Research.

Mamdani emphasizes that power-sharing alone likely means a return to the status quo ante.  The solution is to combine meaningful political reform with reconciliation and power-sharing.  Reconciliation without political reform would be no more than window dressing.
