Abstract:This briefing explains the roots of the crisis in South Sudan, focusing first on divisions within the governing party, before turning to the issues of military integration and the challenges for future peace and stability. The crisis in South Sudan is rooted in two parallel conflicts that have been developing since 2005 and that have now converged, one in the governing party, the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM),and one in the army, the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA). Both have their origins in unresolved tensions following the split in the SPLA in the 1990s, and the incomplete reintegration of anti-SPLA forces into the SPLA after 2005. Notes, ref.
