While the crisis in Darfur, Western Sudan, is widely covered in the news, another conflict has existed for decades. On Tuesday, a panel discussed “The North-South Conflict in Sudan and the Prospects for a Durable Peace—Security, Power-sharing, and Wealth-sharing.” Above are, from left, panelists Sarah Newhall, president and CEO, Pact International, Washington, D.C.; Steve Wondu, ambassador and representative of the Sudanese People’s Liberation Movement to the United States; and Terrence Lyons, Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution.
Issues in the war-torn country include oil revenue and religious and ethnic divides between the regions. “While the war is ended, peace has not been found,” Wondu said, because a deep mistrust exists between the parties to the treaties. “The success or failure of these agreements will depend on the conduct of those who undertake the responsibility of managing the South.”
