SAIIA Occasional Paper No 270, September 2017
In March 2015 a group of 25 prominent academics and development co-operation experts from the global South gathered in Midrand, South Africa to discuss a common analytical framework for South−South co-operation.
As I write this, President al-Bashir has left the country. He should never have risked coming and the South African government should have suspected that something like this might happen.

SAIIA Policy Briefing No 57, October 2012
Like Libya last year, the rapidly deteriorating situation in Syria is forcing tough foreign policy choices the world over. In Ankara, the Turkish government has made its opposition to the Bashar al-Assad government crystal clear. The country's border with Syria is nowadays a porous line across which refugees flee to get away from a country going up in flames. Dissidents and elements of the loosely defined Free Syrian Army also use this border as a space to run logistics. Factions that support either the Assad government or opposition forces in Syria clashed in Lebanon during recent weeks.
Among some African commentators - official, professional, and self-appointed - there is often what amounts to a form of paranoia about the role of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Such attitudes result from a lack of information and gross prejudice. On 17July 2011, the president of the International Criminal Court, Judge Sang-Hyun Song of Korea, issued a statement to celebrate the Day of International Criminal Justice. He called for the people of the world to "remain united in our resolve to defeat impunity and the lawlessness, brutality and disdain for human dignity that it represents."
SAIIA Occasional Paper No 86, June 2011
On Saturday, 9 July 2011, Southern Sudan will celebrate its independence from Northern Sudan. Independence for the south has wide ranging implications for the region: firstly, in terms of the impact it will have on relations with Northern Sudan and, secondly, in terms of unresolved border issues such as the disputed district of Abyei. Southern Sudan’s independence is also significant due to the challenge it presents the north and south in terms of managing its new border, and to find a deal on the export of oil from Southern Sudan through the northern pipeline and refinery infrastructures. For South Africa,…
As published in The Star, 28 June 2011 Barring war, natural disaster, or revolution in a country, few events can have such a dramatic impact on the life of a nation as secession. In a state-centric world where territorial boundaries mark the outer limit of sovereign political power, secession affects all facets of political, economic and social existence. While Southern Sudan gears up for its long awaited independence celebrations, tensions along the north-south border, and unresolved questions regarding post-independence management of citizenship and the oil industry are raising concerns.

SAIIA Policy Briefing No 29, March 2011
As published in The Thinker, Volume 24, February 2011 After many decades of squabbling, in-fighting and bitter civil war, indications are that the inhabitants of Africa’s largest state have decided that a peaceful split may be better than living “unhappily together ever after”. The long awaited referendum that pessimists thought would never happen was conducted without a hitch. United Nations and IGAD observers agree that Southerners voted in a free and fair atmosphere.

On the 10th of July, Khartoum was not only pummelled by the usual desert heat. In the Friendship Hall which overlooks the Blue Nile, the hot issue of the relationship between South and North Sudan came under the spotlight at the official launch of the post-referendum talks between the National Congress Party (NCP) and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).
