Resource description

Eastern and Central Equatoria States played distinctive roles in the two Sudanese civil wars, the effects of which are still reverberating today. The current widespread insecurity, taking the form of tribal and resource-based conflict, armed group activity, and criminal violence, stems largely from shifting alliances, South–South conflict, and the politicization of armed groups during the second civil war and its aftermath. These challenges, and their implications for the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, can only be understood by examining the ethnic, political, and economic history of the Equatorians and their relations with the Government of Sudan and the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement/Army. In doing this, the paper highlights the underlying dynamics of the violence as well as its direct manifestations, both of which must be addressed if human security is to be improved.
