South Sudan: The Perils of Payroll Peace

UK Aid and the London School of Economics and Political Science published in March 2019 a paper titled "South Sudan: The Perils of Payroll Peace."

This has become standard practice in South Sudan. The paper argues that at best it is corruption, at worst it is violently explosive.
