The Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars has released a paper entitled, “Avoiding the Train Wreck in Sudan: U.S. Leverage for Peace,” as part of a two-piece publication examining international engagement in Sudan.
The paper’s authors, the Enough Project’s John Prendergast and Laura Jones, point out eight areas in which the United States, either alone or with allies, possesses leverage that it is currently under-utilizing. The authors go on to argue that there are five areas in which the United States could be creating additional leverage in support of African Union and United Nations peace efforts already underway in the country.
