South Sudan: UN Trusteeship or Joint International Administration?

The Juba-based Sudd Institute (SI), an independent research organization, published on 11 March 2014 an analysis titled "South Sudan's Crisis: A UN Trusteeship or Joint Administration is Outlandish" by Nhial Tiitmamer, research and training officer at SI, and Abraham Awolich, a founding member of SI.

The analysis takes issue with two recent suggestions.  The first comes from Hank Cohen, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, who proposed a UN trusteeship for South Sudan.  The second is discussed in a paper produced by the US Institute of Peace, which proposes an interim joint administration involving both South Sudan and the international community.  The SI authors argue against both ideas.
