Abstract:National unity and internal stability are, in large measure, determined by the extent to which national consensus and public order are present. In this article the author examines 1. what has led to the obvious breakdown of initial national unity in the Sudan, and 2. whether there are grounds for re-integration. Successively he analyses 1. the Afro-Arab schism in the country, 2. the breakdown of public order, 3. the Khartoum conference, 4. the various Southern groupings. The prospects for national integration are slim. Federation may still be a possible path to re-integration.
