Alex de Waal Asseses Meltdown in South Sudan

Al Jazeera published on 12 April 2015 an article titled "Sudan Expert: International Community Enabled South Sudanese Corruption" by Sudan expert Alex de Waal, World Peace Foundation at Tufts University.

This is a solid analysis that takes direct aim at U.S. policy towards Sudan before and during the run up to South Sudan's independence.  The title of the article is unfortunate in that it implies the international community is responsible for corruption in South Sudan.  Corruption was a major problem in southern Sudan dating back to the 1960s and had little to do with the international community.
