South Sudan’s civil war began in December 2013 as a political power struggle, but quickly led to ethnic-targeted killings and revenge attacks. Thousands have been killed, although no one knows the exact number, and the country now faces what could become the most deadly famine in Africa since the 1990s. The Enough Project’s Justine Fleischner recently returned from a month-long trip to South Sudan and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where the regionally mediated peace process is underway. As part of Enough’s new interview series, Fleischner spoke with Greg Hittelman about what she saw.
Violence in Jonglei, South Sudan’s largest state, has rapidly increased in scope and scale. Fighting between the South Sudanese army, or the SPLA, and a Khartoum-supported rebel group continues, and there is renewed inter-communal violence. Additionally, there are increasing reports of attacks on civilians by the SPLA. The escalating humanitarian crisis for Jonglei’s civilian population demands stronger international action.

Prior to South Sudan’s independence in July 2011, Sudan was the largest country in Africa. At over one million square miles, Sudan stretched from the Sahara to Central Africa. As a unified country it bordered on nine other states. Today, after separation, the two Sudans share a diverse and critical geopolitical sub-region that links the Sahara, the Sahel, the Horn, and the Great Lakes.
