Abstract:As a student in development studies at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands, the author was attached to the South Sudan office of Save the Children Fund (UK) to investigate the effects of war on children and to investigate psychosocial interventions for children in southern Sudan. She interviewed people in 12 different locations in 4 provinces: Leer (Upper Nile Province), Akobo, Waat, Panyagor, Yuai, Ayod (Jonglei Province), Labone (Eastern Equatoria), Maker, Ayok, Ajiep, Mangol and Thiek Thou (Bahr el Ghazal). In this Masters thesis, the author describes the war in Sudan, the possibilities to intervene on behalf of the internally displaced people, Nuer and Dinka culture, the war experiences of southern Sudanese children and the impact of these traumata on their lives, and educational interventions in southern Sudan, especially teacher education. The thesis ends with a number of recommendations.
