Uneasy Neighbours: The Elusive Quest for Peace and Stability in the Sudans

Published: October 23, 2011

On July 9, 2011 South Sudan became Africa’s youngest nation. On July 14, the UN General Assembly unanimously voted to admit South Sudan as the 193rd member of the community of  nations. Independence followed a referendum where Southern voters opted overwhelmingly for secession from Khartoum.
