In 2005, the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was signed in Kenya between the National Congress Party and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement. The intention of the agreement was to bring peace to Sudan after more than half a century of civil war, but has it succeeded? In this fascinating study, Dr Joseph O. Abulemoi, author of two previous works on Africa and Sudan, investigates the causes of the North-South Sudan conflict from a variety of viewpoints, including historical, political and social perspectives. He discusses the CPA and its relationship with today’s post-conflict Sudan, the weaknesses of the Agreement and the challenges facing its implementation. He also explains why he feels the CPA may result in the disintegration of Sudan and proposes an alternative solution. This compelling discussion of the CPA and its place in Sudanese politics will interest students of Sudanese history, as well as anyone who wishes to learn more about the recent history of the region.
