South Sudan: Conflict Dynamics in Unity State

The Small Arms Survey published in December 2016 a lengthy report titled "A State of Disunity: Conflict Dynamics in Unity State, South Sudan, 2013-2015" by Joshua Craze and Jerome Tubiana with Claudio Gramizzi.

The paper surveys the first two years of the South Sudanese civil war and analyses its underlying conflict dynamics. Since the beginning of the civil war in December 2013, Unity State, the only majority-Nuer state in South Sudan, has experienced more violence than any other state. One of the primary reasons for conflict was a dispute over the governorship in 1997, which continues to contribute to tension in the state.
