Local Peace Processes in Sudan and South Sudan

The US Institute of Peace (USIP) published on 6 May 2014 a report titled "Local Peace Processes in Sudan and South Sudan" by Jacqueline H. Wilson, a senior program officer at USIP's Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding.

The author notes that local and intercommunal violence continues unabated.  Local conflicts related to cattle raids and grazing rights and persistent national conflicts are inextricably linked in Sudan and South Sudan, complicating efforts to reduce violence and build sustainable peace.  She argues that smaller, more regular meetings focused on a limited number of agenda items are likely to have greater effect than large conferences addressing many topics.
