Why Protests in Sudan Are Different This Time

The Washington-based Africa Center for Strategic Studies published on 28 January 2018 a commentary titled "Understanding the Significance of the Protests in Sudan" by Luka Kuol, former minister of cabinet affairs for Sudan.

The author says the current protests in Sudan are a manifestation of the structural economic, political, and social fragility of the Sudanese state. Unlike previous uprisings, these protests have been engineered by the new forces of youth and middle-class professionals who are well informed, connected, and equipped with enabling technology and social media that the regime is ill-positioned to contain.
