Abstract:The International Sudan Studies Conference (2009) interrogated the current reality and the future of Sudan from multidisciplinary perspectives against the backdrop of the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA). Presentations and discussions were organized around six thematic pillars: the CPA, achievements, challenges and threats for its implementation; history, culture, identity and human development; governance, electoral processes, democracy and human and peoples' rights; issues of statehood and nation-building; Darfur as epitome of the Sudan situation?; and regional and international correlations and dimensions of the Sudan situation, the role of the African Union, the Arab League and external factors. This special issue contains a selection of papers presented at the conference.
