South Sudan


For more than two years, the establishment of the African Union Hybrid Court, a judicial body designed to redress human rights violations, had seemed to perpetually stalled, however the south Sudanese government has finally announced plans to go forward with the hybrid court.


With an eye toward ending intercommunal violence that killed dozens of people last month in Central Equatoria State, South Sudanese religious leaders and civil society activists have organized direct peace and reconciliation talks between various communities.

The signing of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan  on September 12, 2018, has been lauded as the best opportunity for peace in the country. However, the continued delays in implementing it, including the establishment of stipulated transitional justice mechanisms, have raised growing concerns within the international community. One essential part of the agreement that has not been executed is the consolidation of the military and the opposition and rebel forces into one army.
