Why South Sudan conflict is proving intractable : Ugandan forces and lack of international commitment two reasons
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Bereketeab, Redie and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Uppsala published in 2015
In December 2013 war broke out in South Sudan as a result of the power struggle between President Salva Kiir and the ex-vice president Riek Machar. Violence from both sides led to massacres and millions of displaced persons. Agreements to end hostilities have so far been violated. A sustainable peace calls for Ugandan forces to leave South Sudan. The political parties have to reform and be a part of national reconciliation instead of fighting one another.

Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Bereketeab, Redie and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Uppsala published in 2019
This book examines the Ethiopia–Eritrea rapprochement and asks whether it might lead to peace and stability in the Horn of Africa. The Algiers Agreement (2000) that was mediated by the international community – the UN, OAU, EU and USA (the same parties that also served as witnesses and guarantors) – was supposed to be final and binding. But when the Eritrea–Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) published its verdict, Ethiopia rejected it on the grounds that it awarded Badme, the flashpoint of the war, to Eritrea. The witnesses and guarantors, abdica...

Collection (editor); book; text, Created By Melber, Henning; Nordic Africa Institute and Published By Uppsala published in 2015
Beyers Naudé was in his later life one of the leading Afrikaner anti-apartheid activists.

In May 2015, Oom Bey's hundredth birthday was reason to remember and celebrate his service to the people. Faith As Politics is an anthology with contributions from researchers, diplomats, activists and clergies who all have one thing in common – they were all engaged in the struggle against apartheid at the same...

Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Adetula, Victor A. O. and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 2015
A number of recent studies have expressed optimism about the constant decrease in armed conflicts around the world. The prognosis for Africa does not reflect the same optimism. Poverty reduction, transparent and accountable governance and citizen satisfaction with the delivery of public goods and service have shown no sign of significant improvement. In this lecture, Victor Adetula examines the performance of Africa’s regional organisations in ensuring peace and security on the continent. In doing this, he draws attention to the need for national and regional ac...

From Zaire to the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Nzongola-Ntalaja, Georges and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 1998
This paper examines the political and social situation in the DRC since May 1997, together with the prospects for a successful political and social transition. Consistent with the deepest aspirations of the Congolese population, such a transition will succeed if it involves an irreversible development towards multiparty democracy and the full utilisation of the country’s immense resources for economic and social development. In other words, a successful transition is one in which basic freedoms and liberties will be guaranteed through democratic governance and the ru...
