South Sudan

Countries: 

Weak institutions, unevenly distributed development, a vulnerable peace agreement, and renewed interethnic violence all threaten this young and fragile country. Freedom House provides support to civil society to bolster their capacity to advocate more vigorously for democratic reforms and to be more effective in engagement with the Government of South Sudan. Through provision of technical assistance, facilitation of strategic retreats and workshops, Freedom House contributed to the creation of the South Sudan Civil Society Alliance, the first NGO umbrella network in this country.
