South Sudan: Neighbors Play Favorites

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) published on 10 June 2015 an analysis titled "The Regionalisation of the South Sudanese Crisis" by Berouk Mesfin, a senior researcher at ISS.

He writes that Uganda and Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea, Kenya and Egypt support different proxies and their competition could plunge the region into chaos.  As South Sudan struggles with a military and political crisis, the Horn of Africa has turned into a region of growing geopolitical significance with major military, diplomatic, energy, and water issues.
