Reconciliation in South Sudan in the Context of the Current Crisis

In March 2014, the Center for Peacebuilding (KOFF) organised a roundtable to discuss ways in which Swiss actors could support ongoing reconciliation processes in conflict affected South Sudan. In the following pages Ferdinand von Habsburg-Lothringen, former Advisor to the Committee for National Healing, Peace and Reconciliation in South Sudan, first shares his view on reconciliation in South Sudan in relation to the current crisis. In the second part Briony Jones, Senior Researcher of Dealing with the Past Program, Swisspeace, explores core aspects of the notion “reconciliation”.
