Chapter Summary

Sudan's prolonged conflicts have produced several enduring trajectories that have already shaped its present and will likely shape its future developments. This chapter argues that while resource-rich economies such as Sudan could have been crippled by economic sanctions imposed under the unipolar world order dominated by the US, this scenario is most unlikely under the current multipolar world order. Sudan, therefore, is reaping the economic opportunities provided by engaging non-Western development cooperation partners, while steadily moving away from negotiating with the West. The chapter interrogates the current developments in Sudan's cooperation with non-Western partners as alternative to cooperation with Western countries, which has resulted in an outstanding economic growth despite the prevalence of a brutal and destructive civil war. It also deals with Sudan's ability to go beyond negotiating multipolarity to engaging new non-Western development cooperation partners.

Keywords: multipolar world; non-Western development cooperation partners; Sudan
