Referendum in Sudan

From January 9 to 15, Sudan held a referendum to decide the faith of the South of the country. The results of the referendum show that the people of the South had voted overwhelmingly to succeed from the north. In this edition of African Perspectives, we spoke with Farid Omar about the larger geopolitical causes and implications of this referendum, the civil war in Sudan, and the prospects for this new country.

Farid Omar is a consultant, freelance writer and researcher at the York Center for International and Security Studies. He recently wrote an article in the Socialist Worker on Sudan and Oil.
