Abstract:What challenges will face the Sudanese State and civil society as they try to reconstruct a ravaged and divided country after the civil war has come to an end? How will a post-war Sudan respond to the challenges of globalization while it tries to rehabilitate its economy, resettle its refugees and rebuild its institutions? The chapters in this book are derived from contributions to the conference on 'Human rights, democracy and development in the transition in Sudan', convened by the Committee for the Civil Project in Sudan and hosted by the Pan African Movement in Kampala, Uganda from 17 to 20 July 2000. They were edited and produced by Yoanes Ajawin, Chol Gideon Gakmar, Muna Awad Khugali, John Luk Jok, Ahmed el Zubeir Rahhal, Suleiman Musa Rahhal, Abdel Salam, Nur el Din Hamad, Yasin Miheisi, and Alex de Waal.
