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.
