For decades, the population of South Sudan has experienced an almost continuous state of violent conflict. Despite several peace deals in the recent past, national level conflict still interlinks with local, pre-existing conflicts over land, pasture, water, cattle. The conflicting interests related to natural resources add to the complex interlinkages between local and national conflicts. Communities do not benefit from resources sharing and in addition suffer from the exacerbation of armed conflict, deforestation and environmental damage. In this context of unresolved conflicts, civic space is squeezed by the prevalent threat of violent and repressive actions by those whose interests are threatened when citizens speak up or act. Traditional cultural beliefs hinder women to participate in decision making processes and peace-building initiatives. Sexual violence has been used as a weapon in conflicts, but perpetrators are often not prosecuted as local judges are often applying traditional laws.
