Accord 18 focuses on Sudan and asks which issues were excluded from the process leading to the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. It suggests that future initiatives must be more inclusive and better coordinated.
The signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) on 9 January 2005 was hailed by some as the dawn of a new era for Sudan. However, Sudan has a number of interlocking conflicts that cannot be fully addressed by a bilateral agreement.
Peace by piece: Addressing Sudan's conflicts asks which constituencies, interests and issues were excluded from the process, and suggests that future initiatives must be more inclusive and better coordinated if they are to help build a lasting peace.
Featuring contributors from different sides of Sudan's conflicts, the issue presents perspectives on the process that led to the CPA, examines the difficulties in reaching an agreement on Darfur and includes accounts of other peacemaking initiatives. It also contains detailed information on peace agreements, profiles of key actors and a chronology.
