Chapter Summary

The Abyei arbitral tribunal (the Tribunal) was established by the 2008 Arbitration Agreement between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A), where the parties submitted to the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) their difference concerning the excess of mandate of a panel of experts. This panel was composed by the Experts of the Abyei Boundary Commission ('ABC Experts') created by the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement on Sudan in order to define and demarcate an area in the Abyei region in Central Sudan known as "the area of the nine Ngok Dinka chiefdoms transferred to Kordofan in 1905" ("Abyei Area"). The Tribunal was specifically asked to determine whether the ABC Experts had, in their final report, exceeded their mandate and, if so, to delimit the Abyei area.
