  • Mechanisms to stop the fighting in Sudan must be activated

  • Ramadan and stopping the fighting in Sudan

    Last Friday, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2724 calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities in Sudan during the month of Ramadan, which has just started. Both sides of the conflict — the Sudanese Army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) — were called upon to reach...

  • Main points of security reform in Sudan

  • Is there any chance for peace in Sudan?

    Four decades ago, Marina Peter, a German expert on intercultural education and a teacher of German language and history, did not know much about Sudan, except for its hot weather and its refugees. However, after she got a job with a German agency working in Sudan, she began an...

    With each new day, the situation in Sudan worsens and becomes more complex and aggravated, with no solutions or exit strategies on the horizon. Instead, all the signs are that the state is collapsing. Shooting at peaceful protestors is a manifestation of this, whereas before it was a crime. In...

  • Who are they shooting in Sudan, and why?

    On 13 November, the youth of Sudan went on the march with the same level of organisation and for the same goals that they did on 21 and 30 October. The streets of Khartoum and dozens of other Sudanese cities were filled with chants defining those goals: the rejection...

  • Sudan is a disaster waiting to happen

    Following Saturday’s demonstrations in Khartoum in support of the calls by army officers to replace the cabinet and reform the Forces of Freedom and Change coalition, it is fair to say that political and social polarisation in Sudan has reached a critical level. This will push the country to...

  • Sudan and the curse of transitional periods

    Immediately after Sudan’s Prime Minister, Abdalla Hamdok, launched his initiative under the heading of “National Crisis and Issues of Transition: The Way Forward”, we the people declared our support for it, and called for it to be dealt with positively. It needs the effort to ensure its success, not...
