Refugees in South Sudan's Peace Process

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) published on 9 July 2018 a commentary titled "Role of Refugees in South Sudan's Peace Process" by Tsion Tadesse Abebe and Selam Tadesse, both with ISS.

South Sudanese represent the largest refugee population in Africa and the third largest in the world. Most are hosted by neighboring Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Sudan and most are women and children. The authors argue that these refugees can contribute positively to the ongoing search for peace mainly due to their experiences in exile, living alongside different ethnic groups. Their experiences often make them accommodating of people's differences.
