Sudan and South Sudan's Merging conflicts
The conflicts in Sudan and South Sudan are increasingly merged. Halting drift toward a Uganda-Sudan proxy war on the Sudan-South Sudan border requires better coordination by regional organisations and more engagement by influential outside powers, notably China and the U.S., including via the UN Security Council. A UN-imposed arms embargo, improved border monitoring, and a UN panel of experts mandated to study the funding of South Sudan’s war are needed.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS
SYNTHESE ET RECOMMANDATIONS
Yemen’s UN-backed transition has unravelled and the country has entered a new, highly unstable phase. On 22 January President Abed-Rabbo Mansour Hadi and the prime minister resigned after Huthi fighters seized the presidential palace and consolidated control of the capital. This has upended the troubled transition and raises the very real prospect of territorial fragmentation, economic meltdown and widespread violence if a compromise is not reached soon.
Bruxelles | 23 Jan 2015
Suite à l’adoption, le 17 janvier 2015, par l’Assemblée nationale congolaise d’un texte de loi proposé par le gouvernement du président Joseph Kabila qui pourrait mener à la prolongation de son mandat, de violentes manifestations ont éclaté dans la capitale Kinshasa et plusieurs autres villes du pays. Avant que ces protestations ne dégénèrent davantage, le gouvernement devrait revoir cette loi et dissocier les élections du recensement, comme cela a été voté aujourd’hui par le Sénat.
