Abstract: This report is based on seven weeks of field research in Jonglei, WES and EES, and was undertaken shortly after the results of the referendum for independence were declared. South Sudan was preparing for its official independence on 9 July 2011, after decades of cataclysmal conflict in which tensions within the south have been exacerbated, and development hardly took place. The focus of the report is on interventions aiming at security promotion in this context, specifically at DDR (Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration) and SALW (Small Arms Light Weapens) control, and to a lesser extent SSR (Security Sector Reform).
