Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with power-sharing as a model of conflict management, which has been applied during various stages in Sudan's history. The most prominent instances of its recent use in Sudan are the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) and the Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA). It focuses on the case of southeast Darfur where the idea of power-sharing has been translated, localised, and put into action by connecting it with a local version of the model, called al-'ud. The existence of a local version of the model indicates that the communities in southeast Darfur have known the idea of sharing power before the arrival of the travelling notion of power-sharing to this context. The chapter mainly considers the two Arab groups of the Rizaiqat and the Maaliya. They are not only the largest groups, but also the most dominant.

Keywords: Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA); conflict management; Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA); Maaliya; power-sharing; Rizaiqat; southeast Darfur
