Promoting Peace in Sudan
From late May to early June 2009 graduate student Jason Klocek conducted interviews with religious actors in southern Sudan as part of an ongoing research initiative at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs. The project seeks to achieve a deeper understanding of the peacebuilding efforts of such actors in post-conflict societies. In what activities are religious actors most involved? How does their engagement shape the formation and implementation of such endeavors? By addressing these questions, the interviews provide a valuable resource for teachers, students, and policy professionals seeking a deeper understanding of the contemporary nature and impact of religion on peacebuilding efforts in southern Sudan.
