Since July 2016, the conflict in South Sudan has spread and evolved – deepening ethnic tensions, bringing conflict to new areas and causing widespread displacement. Recent months have also seen the emergence of a number of new armed groups in opposition to the government, and with them the multi-layered conflict drivers in the country have multiplied and become more entrenched. With the peace process critically undermined, the political and conflict dynamics in the country are evolving towards a lower intensity conflict that is more fragmented and spread out as it increasingly reflects a series of communal conflicts faught along ethnic faultlines. These more localised conflict dynamics are being reinforced by a process of decentralisation, exclusionary politics and a brutal counter-insurgency campaign that often targets civilians.
