Sustaining relative cross-border peace among pastoralists

The report “Sustaining relative peace” (2017, 72pp) is the outcome of a reflection by PAX and partners on ten years of support for human security among pastoralist communities in the borderlands of South Sudan, Uganda and Kenya, one of PAX’s longest-standing peacebuilding programmes. Over three days, the partners discussed shifts in context, key moments in the development of the programme, peacebuilding methodologies and the main successes and challenges. The report also draws upon reflection on the same issues in a 2-day meeting in Kapoeta, South Sudan, with authorities and security actors from the three countries. The description in the report of the conflict dynamics is based on the situation as it was up until June 2016, shortly before violence broke out again in South Sudan.
