Abstract:Five years after the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) of Sudan was signed in Nairobi in January 2005, this book compiles scholarly analyses of the implementation of the powersharing agreement, of the ongoing conflicts, with particular respect to land issues, of the challenges of the reintegration of internally displaced people and refugees, and of the repercussions of the CPA in other regions of Sudan as well as in neighbouring countries. The papers assembled in the book were first presented during a workshop on 'After the CPA: signs of change?' held at the University of Bremen in November 2006. They were submitted and updated in 2009. An introduction by Elke Grawert is followed by three parts: 1. Implementation & potential of the CPA (Melha Rout Biel, Rania Hassan Ahmed, Yasir Awad Abdalla Eltahir); 2. Challenges facing post-war societies in Sudan (Samson S. Wassara on prospects for peaceful coexistence in the Nuba Mountains, Tayseer El-Fatih Abdel A'al on government and NGO structures in Southern Kordofan, Guma Kunda Komey on ethnic identity politics in the Nuba Mountains, Samira Musa Armin Damin on return migration to the Nuba Mountains, Joseph Lodiong Lubajo on basic education in Southern Sudan, Marilyn Ossome on violence against women in Kakuma refugee camp, Kenya, and Obaka Otieno John on Sudanese returnees from Kenya); 3. The CPA in its subregional context (Regassa Bayissa Sima on Gambella, Ethiopia, Monika M. Sommer on Ethiopian federalism, Peter Woodward on the connection between the CPA and the Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA), and Elke Grawert on subregional peace after the CPA). The final chapter, by Elke Grawert, discusses theoretical issues. [ASC Leiden abstract]
