IGAD and the South Sudan Peace Process

The Juba-based Sudd Institute published on 7 December 2014 a policy brief titled "Inclusivity: A Challenge to the IGAD-led South Sudanese Peace Process" by Zacharia D. Akol, director of training at the Sudd Institute.

Akol argues that the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) has been unable to convince the belligerent parties in South Sudan to accept the inclusion of the other parties in the talks.  Perceived or real, the appearance of partiality by IGAD, coupled with ostensible conflicting interests, critically overshadows IGAD's good work in terms of its determination to find a lasting peace in South Sudan.
