The best of all possible peace deals?

Critics decry the 2005 peace agreement between the government of the Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement as incomplete, a result of the desire of external actors for a quick solution that is neither truly comprehensive nor sustainable. Through a chronological analysis of the peace process between 2000 and 2005, this article demonstrates that the scope for compromise was limited and that a significantly better’ deal was unlikely. The article’s ambition is to present a concise and empirically grounded analysis of the peace process and to lay foundations for further investigation of a crucial, contested and complicated subject in Sudan’s recent history.
