Abstract:The present study assesses the development of localization or, more specifically, Sudanization policies and programmes during the colonial period and after self-government. Sudanization is the replacement expatriates (i.e. British and Egyptians) by Sudanese nationals in the public service. 'Localization' is a term invented by the British Colonial Office to describe the process by which expatriates in the public service of the former British colonies were replaced by local people. Two stages of Sudanization can be identified. The first was that of the gradual employment of the Sudanese in public service relating localization to school and university output and the length of time it took the national to prove himself within the service. The nationalists rejected this approach, saying it would take a generation before any significant impact was made on the problem. The second stage began with the accelerated Sudanization programme of 1954, when the political movement demanded that Sudanese should immediately replace non-Sudanese and expatriates who had roles in the economy, society, and polity.
