Spoilers on the battlefield and in the negotiations process have completely undermined the search for peace in South Sudan. After numerous threats from the African Union and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the lack of any meaningful and escalating consequences for significant cease-fire violations and obstruction has emboldened spoilers on all sides and led to a spiraling of the conflict.
The metastasizing crisis in South Sudan requires a new strategy for achieving a sustainable peace. Conditions on the ground are unbearable for large swathes of South Sudan’s population, and regional peacemaking efforts are not delivering results.

Large-scale migration to Europe has precipitated a paradigm shift in relations between the European Union (EU) and the government of Sudan, and closer ties between both entities. This new partnership has resulted in the EU disbursing millions of euros to the Sudanese government for technical equipment and training efforts geared toward stopping the flow to Europe of migrants from Sudan and those from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, and other countries in sub-Saharan Africa who come through Sudan.

This week, Salva Kiir, the president of South Sudan and the leader of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), swore in Taban Deng Gai as first vice president, replacing former Vice President Riek Machar.
Today, the Enough Project released its latest policy brief by Founding Director John Prendergast, The Paper Tiger in South Sudan: Threats without Consequences for Atrocities and Kleptocracy.
We, the undersigned organizations, continue to be alarmed by the drastic humanitarian situation in South Sudan, with the Famine Early Warning Systems Network reporting increasing death rates and a deepening humanitarian catastrophe. While the formation of the Transitional Government of National Unity may be an important step, its first actions must be to end the fighting that continues and to provide immediate unimpeded humanitarian access throughout the country to alleviate the suffering of the South Sudanese people.
Following the deaths of 18 civilians in a displaced people’s camp run by the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) in the city of Malakal on February 18, reporters are beginning to piece together details on the incident.
According to the Daily Beast, “The evidence so far strongly indicates that soldiers from the government forces of President Salva Kiir’s Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA), possibly working with militias, planned, prepared, and carried out the attack.”
Executive Summary and Recommendations
On the two-year anniversary of the start of South Sudan’s brutal civil war, a peace agreement has been signed and implementation is underway. Yet personal political and economic interests continue to threaten the prospects for peace in South Sudan, as well as the economic future of the country for its citizens. If those spoilers benefiting financially and politically from the continuation of the conflict are not countered, the peace agreement will remain imperiled.

New field research from the Enough Project shows that the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) is weakened to an unprecedented point, counting only 120 armed fighters in its ranks, scattered across three countries in central Africa. Despite its weakened state, the LRA continues to pose a threat to local populations in Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and in South Sudan, with 150 recorded attacks and 500 abductions of civilians for the first eight months of 2015 and 200,000 people displaced.

In a letter to the African Union (AU) Commission Chairperson, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, the Enough Project joined 37 South Sudanese and international organizations urging her to utilize the upcoming AU Peace and Security Council meeting on South Sudan as an opportunity to create pressure to establish the Hybrid Court for South Sudan. The court would try grave crimes committed in the country’s recent conflict, as provided for in the August peace agreement between the parties to the conflict.
(Nairobi, September 24, 2015) – The African Union Peace and Security Council will meet in New York on September 26, 2015, on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly to discuss South Sudan.
