Arms now flow unchecked around both Sudan and South Sudan and they kill thousands of civilians each year in both countries. Conflict has raged in South Sudan for over half a century, both before and after independence from Sudan in 2011, while since the Islamist regime seized power in Khartoum in 1989, it has been at war with its own citizens and has become one of Africa's biggest arms producers, partly thanks to its military pact with Iran. The panel will discuss who is circulating these weapons and why.

This event is part of the Centre of African Studies' Sudan & South Sudan Series. Please refer to the CAS event page for information regarding more upcoming events part of this series.
