Above, SSSUK’s July Edition of their journal, published twice yearly.
The Society for the Study of the Sudans UK (SSSUK) is a remarkable meeting space and resource for anyone interested in Sudan or South Sudan. Its members include academics, development workers, artists, journalists, writers but also many folk, who like me, are just interested in Sudanese current affairs and culture. Its journals, online resources and annual symposiums provide a wealth of information, discussion and food for thought for scholars, political analysts and indeed anyone wishing to further their understanding of Sudan and South Sudan.
SSSUK’s symposiums have hosted leading figures in Sudanese and South Sudanese cultural and political life and have always pursued constructive, open-minded dialogue, even on the most contentious and painful of issues. They have been annual events to look forward to for more than twenty-five years, weathering and commentating on the many profound changes Sudan and South Sudan have witnessed in recent years.
On a personal level, SSSUK has been an enduring and inspirational presence for nearly thirty years. Some of the most remarkable, brave and knowledgeable people I have had the privilege to know I met for the first time at SSSUK.
