CSIS is following events in Sudan, as Africa’s largest country breaks apart and tries to rebuild itself as two separate nations. The Republic of South Sudan, the world’s newest nation from July 9, 2011, faces the formidable task of building a state with few human resources, amid a backdrop of serious insecurity.
