This study aims at assessing options for systemic conflict transformation in Southern Sudan. It was conducted in 2006/2007 by the Berghof Foundation for Peace Support (BFPS), on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The study builds upon the conceptual framework of the action research project "The Systemic Approach to Conflict Transformation: Concept and Fields of Application" which has been completed in 2005, supported by BMZ and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). Furthermore, it complements a case study on Sudan/Southern Sudan, which has been produced in the context of the concept study on systemic approaches (together with a study on Nepal and Indonesia/Aceh). While the 2005 report has a strong analytical focus, the following study looks more into the practical implementation of a systemic conflict transformation approach in Southern Sudan.
