Refugee respondents expressed frustration with a number of issues, ranging from the current political leadership to the IGAD-led peace process and its emphasis on power sharing.
Respondents’ views differed in many areas, but there was a high degree of convergence in some key aspects. One related to the lack of information on the peace process, as nearly all respondents felt there was little accurate or trustworthy information.
The Peace and Security Council (PSC) is set to meet at ministerial level on the margins of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly’s opening session in New York later this month to discuss the continuing war in South Sudan. Neither the PSC nor the UN Security Council (UNSC) has so far come up with lasting solutions to the devastating war in Africa’s newest state.
The newest state in the Horn of Africa has become an arena where powerful neighbours manoeuvre for regional influence. The deteriorating security situation in oil-rich South Sudan took neighbouring states by surprise, but they have risen to the opportunities the situation offers. Uganda and South Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea, Kenya and Egypt support different proxies and their competition could plunge the region into chaos.
