Conflict in Sudan Causes Returnee Crisis in South Sudan

 Refugees International published on 27 July 2023 a report titled "Return to a Displaced Nation: Sudan Crisis and South Sudan's Returnees" by Daniel P. Sullivan and Abdullahi Boru Halakhe.

The conflict in Sudan between the Sudan Armed Forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces has resulted in the return to South Sudan of 170,000 persons who had fled earlier violence in their country.  The situation has created a mass, uncoordinated, and unplanned repatriation movement for South Sudan.
