Sudan Peace Watch

Sudan held referenda for South Sudan's and Abyei’s self-determination in January 2011. As the date approached, the Enough Project published a series of papers called the Sudan Peace Watch. In this series, from October 2010 through January 2011, Enough’s team of researchers and policy analysts provided in-depth coverage of developments around the key benchmarks and potential flashpoints in the run-up to the referenda.
