Sudan: Conflict and Minorities

Reports |

The civil war in Sudan is often portrayed as a battle between the North and South of the country, between Islam and Christianity. This report explains how this over-simplification obscures an understanding of the war and how it hides the position of minority groups and women in today’s Sudan.

Please note that the terminology in the fields of minority rights and indigenous peoples’ rights has changed over time. MRG strives to reflect these changes as well as respect the right to self-identification on the part of minorities and indigenous peoples. At the same time, after over 50 years’ work, we know that our archive is of considerable interest to activists and researchers. Therefore, we make available as much of our back catalogue as possible, while being aware that the language used may not reflect current thinking on these issues.
