This seminar will assess South Sudan’s new fault lines. Several drivers of conﬂict, some new and others accentuated by the crisis, have emerged. Poorly managed decentralisation, corruption, ethnic rivalries, exclusionary politics and unaddressed local grievances have fed militias and insurgencies across the country.
These problems are likely to become entrenched if conﬂict mitigation and prevention mechanisms are not part of the Agreement for the Resolution of the Conﬂict in South Sudan. Regional efforts to resolve the conflict will also be discussed.
Copies of the latest ISS analysis on South Sudan will be available at the seminar:
