Sudan, six months after separation
Sudan, six months after separationHas the Arab Spring reached the country?
Six months after its separation from the South, Sudan faces a number of challenges. A faltering economy is fueling unrest, while UN sanctions are still in effect. Further aggravating the situation is continued conflict in Darfur and a running dispute with neighbouring South Sudan that has put an end to the flow of oil and money.
In this episode of The Stream, we speak with Sudanese blogger Amir Ahmad, human rights activist Dalia Haj-Omar, and writer Jok Madut about the future of the divided region.
