Table of Resources

This is a collection of study resources suggested by SSSUK members. They include libraries, museums, courses, websites, directories and more.

The resources mentioned should have particular relevance to Sudan and/or South Sudan; a relevance made clear in the description if it is not already clear in the title of the resource.

We are particularly hoping for good coverage of resources based in the UK.

The University of Reading has for a number of years collaborated with academic colleagues in Sudan in fields of research and teaching in which they share an interest and expertise, e.g. agriculture, archaeology, geography, development, construction and management, climate change, food security, bio-diversity, and poverty alleviation.

University of Nottingham

The University's Human Rights Law Centre has actively supported progressive initiatives in Sudan. Sudanese post-gruduate students awarded scholarships by the Physical Environmental Centre of Khartoum have also studied at the University of Nottingham, particularly in the environmental disciplines and related areas of engineering. Students have formed a Sudanese Nile Society, which aims to provide a forum for events and discussions on Sudanese matters.
