The July Deadline Won’t Work: Why the U.S. needs to delay the decision on Sudan sanctions

 

Note: This policy brief was published by the Enough Project.

 

As a July decision approaches on whether to permanently remove most sanctions on Sudan, the Trump administration should properly evaluate progress, or lack thereof, on each of the five tracks on which progress is required, and the administration should not privilege any single track over others.

A close examination of these documents helps illustrate the warped incentives that are presented to senior military officials in South Sudan.
