Salvaging South Sudan's Fragile Peace

The International Crisis Group (ICG) published on 13 March 2019 a report titled "Salvaging South Sudan's Fragile Peace Deal."

The peace deal under discussion neither resolves the power struggle between President Salva Kiir and erstwhile rebel leader Riek Machar nor outlines a final political settlement for South Sudan. Rather, it establishes a wobbly Kiir-Machar truce and grafts it onto the previous failed peace terms. ICG argues that to stave off renewed civil war, external actors should urge the belligerents to strike new bargains on security and internal boundaries and accept a third-party protection force for the capital of Juba.
