The Curse of Exclusive Nationalism: National Identity and Citizenship -- 4. The Rise of Protest Movements in Southern Sudan and Darfur -- 5. Reimagining a Common Future for Two Sudans
The 2011 split of Sudan into two nations - and the conflicts that have continued in its wake - has made it a case of ongoing significance for understanding security and state-building in sub-Saharan Africa. Examining both the north-south divide in the two Sudans as well as the spread of political violence from Darfur, this timely study has two aims: First, it shows how slavery and the legacies of colonialism continue to shape the challenges of state formation and political identity. Secondly, it charts out a possible path for overcoming historical obstacles to achieve inclusive citizenship and representative democracy
