Roberts, Rebecca (2006) Developing National Mine Action Capacity in Sudan: The Impact of Conflict, Politics, and International AssistanceOslo.

​This report is based on field research conducted in Nairobi and Sudan in the first half of 2004, in Nairobi in November 2005, and in Khartoum, Juba, and Nairobi in April and May 2006. It examines the chief obstacles to the development of indigenous mine action capacities in Sudan. The report argues that the impact of protracted civil conflict, the complexity of Sudanese political dynamics, and the inconsistencies of international assistance have all posed as significant barriers to the development of a Sudanese national mine action capacity.
