WPF Sudan Peace Archive: Highlights from the Collection

The Alex de Waal Collection includes materials related to the work of the African Union High-Level Panel on Darfur (AUPD) as well as some background materials he initially produced in his private capacity for limited circulation. Below are some highlights.

  • Several agreements between the Sudanese government and the Darfur rebel groups between 2003 and 2005, and one in 2010. None of these agreements were faithfully observed, but together they formed an important foundation from which to negotiate a final settlement.
  • Alex de Waal’s monthly briefings on the evolving situation in Darfur and Chad from October 2005 – October 2006, originally prepared for restricted circulation. Titled, "Sudan: Analysis and Prospects" and organzied by date, these briefings represent de Waal's personal assessment of the risks and opportunities for peace in Sudan during this critical year. Access a sample from September 2006.
The majority of the Sudan Peace Archive materials relate to efforts to mediate final issues between Sudan and South Sudan resulting from the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed in 2005 and the decision of southerners to form an independent state of South Sudan (2011). Below are a sample of documents and key speeches available exclusively through the WPF archive.
