South Sudan

PAX's South Sudan programme aims at dialogue between the various population groups in South Sudan and between the governments and their citizens.

In 2005, Sudan signed a comprehensive peace agreement (CPA) with the southern part of the country. PAX watched over the implementation of the agreements made and spread CPA alerts. On 9 January 2011, a majority of the population in the south of Sudan voted for an independent South Sudan. A half year later, the Republic of South Sudan came into existence.

Oil played an important role in the conflict between Sudan and South Sudan. That is why we and the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan (ECOS) work to ensure that oil extraction in South Sudan contributes to peace and sustainable development.
