    War in the Sudan
    Marina Ottaway May 9, 2012 عربي

    Hope for a lasting peace following South Sudan’s independence has receded with Sudan and South Sudan already engaged in acts of war. In many ways, both sides need conflict with the other as a diversionary tactic for their own internal problems so neither is anxious to reach a settlement.

    Paul Salem April 19, 2012 Al-Hayat عربي

    As Sudan drifts again into war, the regional and international community must act quickly to save the lives of hundreds of thousands that are at risk. And political change in Khartoum might have to be part and parcel of a long-term solution.

    Darfur Makes Sudan's Omar al-Bashir Barack Obama's Biggest African Foe
    May 26, 2009 U.S. News & World Report

    Darfur is being pushed perilously close to the edge by the Sudanese government. President Obama's biggest test in Africa will not be pirates, but Omar al-Bashir, the first sitting president with a warrant for his arrest.

    Democratic Doubt
    Josh Kurlantzick November 30, 2008 Boston Globe

    Africa is now paralyzed by the rise of failed democracies—countries that hold elections but do not develop institutions to support civil society—sparking conflict rather than easing it. The result across broad swaths of the continent has been the concentration of power with the people who make the continent's conflicts worse.

    Democracy Lite: Arab Judicial Reform
    John Stuart Blackton August 25, 2008

    Is America serious about democracy and political reform in the Arab world? Does the neo-Wilsonian dimension of the Bush administration's policy toward the region presage a decisive departure from the longstanding realist policy of "regime maintenance"?

    Not the Enemy: The Arab Media and American Reform Efforts
    Marc Lynch August 22, 2008

    There is broad consensus in Washington that a "war of ideas" is a central component of the larger war on terror. And in this war, a prime target is the "poisonous" Arab media environment, particularly the new satellite television channels , which are blamed for spreading anti-American sentiment.

    Sudan: Old Problems Resolved, New Ones Created
    Hassan Satti August 20, 2008 عربي

    The January 2005 peace agreement has improved Sudan's standing in the international community, as demonstrated by $6 billion in economic support raised at a donors' conference in Oslo in April 2005. Inside Sudan, however, the agreement has revealed new sources of instability.

    Five Myths about Western Political Party Aid in the Arab World
    Thomas Carothers August 19, 2008 عربي

    Until recently Western assistance programs aimed at strengthening political parties were less present in the Arab world than in almost all other areas of the developing world.

    Rough Sledding for U.S. Party Aid Organizations in the Arab World
    Dina Bishara August 18, 2008 عربي

    Foreign democracy assistance organizations working directly with political parties have come into the line of fire as some Arab governments have pushed back against democratization initiatives over the past two years. In Algeria, Bahrain, and Egypt in particular, the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Republican Institute (IRI) have been among the first to feel pressure.
