Against the backdrop of major political transformations between Sudan and South Sudan, localized conflicts in South Sudan’s Greater Upper Nile region have been largely overlooked by the international community.

The briefing documents serious human rights abuses, as well as the origins and where possible supply routes of key weapons and munitions used by the different parties to commit such violations.
