South Sudan: looking back to look forwards

Since December 2013 – only two and a half years after becoming an independent country – South Sudan has been mired in a deep political, military, and humanitarian crisis. We have just published a series of papers reflecting on the breakdown of post-conflict mechanisms that were being put in place prior to the outbreak of violence in December 2013, as well as a review of past and present humanitarian operations, in particular, Operation Lifeline Sudan. We have also published a paper which looks at people's perceptions of their former livelihoods, access to basic services and governance in Pibor County prior to the escalation of violence.
