Peacebuilding and Governance
Insecurity and continuation of conflict in South Sudan remains a major challenge in the efforts to rebuild the fledgling nation. Sporadic incidence of inter-tribal conflict as well as the potential risk of SPLA changing face to take on a tribal identity increases clashes in the various states. South Sudan is not immune to insurgence from outside the country and continued tensions between the North and the South particularly in the Border States continues to impact on resettlement initiatives. The incidence of conflict causes persistent movement and displacement of peoples to areas of perceived safety.
At HDC we participate in peace building and civic education through several activities within the larger scope of Peace Building. These include participation in formation of traditional conflict resolution mechanisms such as introduction of Traditional Peace Committees and the training of the same. We promote a rights-based approach to good citizenship and governance.
