Sudan hosts 360,000 refugees and asylum seekers
By Anna Louise Strachan
Sudan is a source, transit, and destination country for migrants. Sudanese migrants are a mixed group of refugees and asylum seekers, economic migrants and, to a lesser extent, foreign students. The majority are men aged 25–40, and they come from a wide range of socioeconomic and educational backgrounds.
The conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile (the ‘Two Areas’) between the Government of Sudan (GoS) and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/ Army-North (SPLM/A-N) has entered its fourth year, characterized by continuous high-intensity military action and air attacks.
Background on the humanitarian situation
Across Sudan and South Sudan, people who have for decades struggled for peace, independence and to secure their basic human rights continue to suffer war and humanitarian crises. Millions of people in both countries lack access to healthcare, food, shelter and education.
