Our work in Sudan

LPI has been supporting peace initiatives in Sudan since the early 1990s. LPI`s current programme supports inclusive and sustainable peacebuilding processes in the country in partnership with universities and civil society actors.

The rationale

LPI’s Sudan programme contributes to building peace in partnership with active and knowledgeable Sudanese actors from academia, civil society and local communities. This is done through the provision of organisational and technical capacity building support to partners as well as directly accompanying our partners as they engage in peacebuilding activities.

What we do

Currently, LPI is supporting its university partners to implement dialogue-to-action projects that aim to prevent divisive discourse on from escalating into violence on two campuses—Ahfad University for Women in Khartoum State and Dalanj University in South Kordofan State.  These “Sustained Dialogue” projects are led by diverse groups of young people across the campuses as they strive to promote a culture of dialogue amongst their peers and in neighbouring communities.

The Life & Peace Institute in partnership with the Rift Valley Institute organised a Horn of Africa Bulletin Forum on ‘P/CVE - the Good, the Bad and the Ugly’. The Forum brought together representatives from IGAD member states, prominent academicians, civil society groups and other relevant partners, from 11-12 January 2018 in Naivasha, Kenya.

Participants interrogated basic assumptions about ‘what works, where and when’ in designing policies and programmes that can help prevent or mitigate violent extremism in the Horn of Africa. A number of challenges mentioned also underscored the need to get P/CVE programming right by undertaking evidence-based design and implementation.

The Forum follows from the July-August 2017 issue of the Horn of Africa Bulletin, which has been publishing analysis relating to the Horn of Africa for the past 25 years.
