Abstract:Originally presented at a seminar on Sudanese society in the context of civil war, organized by the University of Copenhagen on 9-10 February 2001, the papers in this volume all address different aspects of the large-scale death, displacement and material and social destruction caused by the civil war which has been ongoing in Sudan since the 1950s. They mainly focus on the contemporary situation. The first four papers deal with the effects of the civil war on local communities in the southern part of Sudan - the Nuba mountains (Leif Manger), the Hadendowa (Birthe L. Nautrup), the Nuer (Douglas H. Johnson) and the Uduk-speaking communities on the Sudan-Ethiopian border (Wendy James). The fifth paper, by Ivan Smilianov, focuses on the northern, Islamist side of the civil war, especially on the views of Hasan al-Turabi, leader of the Islamic renewal in Sudan, on human rights.
