Promoting Knowledge and Understanding of Sudan and South Sudan

About the Programme

The Sudanese Programme (originally known as the Sudan Programme) was founded by Ahmed Al-Shahi and Bona Malwal in 2002 with sponsorship from the Middle East Centre and the African Studies Centre at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford.

From its beginning the Programme concerned itself with the civil war in Sudan and the subsequent peace process and  has been successful in further knowledge and understanding of Sudan and dialogue between northerners and southerners.

The Programme's remit is above politics, ethnicity and religion.
