IGAD, Political Settlements and Peace building in South Sudan:

Lessons from the 2018 Peace Negotiation Processes

South Sudan became the world’s youngest nation on 22nd July 2011. Two years down the road, the country descended into conflict and civil strife. A series of revitalization talks initiated by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) led to the revitalization of the previously signed and broken Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS). This paper explores IGAD’s role in facilitating and supporting peacebuilding and conflict mediation initiatives in South Sudan and highlights key challenges that must be addressed and windows of opportunities that could be exploited for its effective implementation.

A Huge Leap to Green Energy?

The Future of Africa’s Energy Supply

The lack of a comprehensive, reliable electricity supply is a central obstacle to economic development on the African continent. In times of climate change, the question arises as to how the rising energy demand can be met in a climate-friendly manner. Western partners, and Germany in particular, emphasise the opportunities presented by renewable energy, but some African countries are already making plans for nuclear alternatives – and fossil fuels are by no means out of the running, either.

Museveni als „ewiger Präsident“ in Uganda: Aufhebung des Alterslimits als letzte Hürde?

Nach monatelangen Debatten stimmte das ugandische Parlament am 20. De-zember 2017 für das sogenannte “Age Limit Bill”, welches eine Verfassungsän-derung vorsieht und die Altersgrenze von 75 Jahren für den Präsidenten auf-hebt. Damit kann Präsident Yoweri Mu-seveni, seit 32 Jahren im Amt, auch bei der nächsten Wahl im Jahr 2021 antre-ten. Er wäre dann 76 Jahre alt. Noch hat Museveni nicht öffentlich erklärt, ob er dann nochmal antreten will. In Uganda ist nach der Verfassungsänderung nun aber die Angst groß, dass der Präsident sich damit de facto sein Amt auf Lebens-zeit gesichert hat.
