Abstract:This publication was put together to delineate potential scenarios, and to identify the political options they open up for different actors, in post-referendum Sudan. In the introductory chapter, Alex de Waal outlines the enduring features that underlie Sudanese politics, and develops scenarios for the future of the country after the end of the CPA (Comprehensive Peace Agreement). Atta El-Battahani traces Sudan's largely unsuccessful attempts at democratic transformation since independence and provides a concise guide to the 2010 general elections. Adding a southern perspective, John G. Nyuot Yoh critically assesses the SPLM's (Sudan People's Liberation Movement) five years as a 'liberation movement in power'. Marina Peter's chapter focuses on the future of the three areas - Blue Nile, the Nuba Mountains, and Abyei - that challenge the clear-cut North-South divide in Sudan. The last two chapters focus on the external dimension of Sudanese politics and conflicts. Roland Marchal disentangles the complex web of interests, rivalries, and dependencies that links Sudan to its neighbours in the region and develops scenarios on how the possible secession of Southern Sudan could affect this precarious regional order. Peter Schumann shows how the conflict between North and South Sudan, which initially was a local conflict, became the concern of a variety of international actors and outlines the sometimes conflicting interests of key players.
