EISA Sudan: Conflict Mapping

EISA engaged in a conflict mapping exercise in order to develop a clear understanding of the nature, origin and possible prevention of electoral conflicts and presented the report on the mapping exercise in Khartoum and in Juba in February 2009. This exercise entailed

  • mapping out the existing landscape with regard to local management structures, processes, dynamics and actors
    bringing together approaches to conflict
  • identifying gaps and suggesting how these approaches can be brought together.

EISA worked closely with local stakeholders with and engaging in dialogue. This took the form of meetings in Juba and Khartoum to consider how conflict management can impact on the prospects for conflict prevention and reduction, successful democratic elections, and sustainable peace. The EISA Sudan office, supported by Head Office, held consultative meetings in Khartoum and Juba presenting its findings on the conflict mapping exercise.
