This new FAIR case brief by Eli Stamnes and Cedric de Coning focuses on the peace negotiations resulting in the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS), finalized in September 2018.

The R-ARCSS is a set of agreements that seeks, as the title suggest, to revitalize the ARCSS. Its provisions are very similar to those of its predecessor: a permanent ceasefire; a power-sharing transitional government; followed by elections after three years. However, compared to the ARCSS it has a more ambitious timeline for establishing a unified army, and it includes provisions to determine the country’s internal borders, which were the subject of considerable gerrymandering during the war.
