Abstract

 

The central focus of this paper is on drawing lessons for Sudan and South Sudan after examining the Ethio-Eritrean post-secession hostility. Through examining various documents qualitatively and ascertaining the view of key informants, the study has come up with the following findings. First, the post-secession Sudan and South Sudan destabilization and proxy engagement need to be repudiated since it complicates the normalization process and widen the existing mistrust and animosity. Second, the culture of militarism needs to be replaced by a new political and diplomatic approach. Third, the negative implications of unaccountable and authoritarian rule should to be overcome and replaced by a democratic system of governance where the power of the elite is limited, the voice of the public heard and the rights of civil-political organizations guaranteed. Fourth, the forceful and abusive deportations of nationals of each other must come to an end since it threatened bilateral relations and people to people cordiality. Fifth, the issue of political will and compromise is also fundamental to Sudan and South Sudan to solve various unresolved issues including border disputes. Institutionalization of their relations and implementation of the agreements in good faith is the other compelling lesson to be drawn thereof by the Sudan and South Sudan.

Key words: Secession, Normalization, Lesson, Hostility, Peace, Conflict, War.
