Mapping conflict motives: the Sudan – South Sudan border

In this project, IPIS analyses the conflict dynamics in the wider border area spanning Sudan and South Sudan. The analysis specifically looks into the motivations and interests of the parties involved in the interstate, intrastate and local conflicts in this area.

The examined period spans September 2012 – December 2013. The geographic areas covered include: the South Sudanese states of Western Bahr-El Ghazal, Northern Bahr-El Ghazal, Warrap, Unity and Upper Nile; the Sudanese states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile; and the Abyei box.
