Borders: Let the people choose

In an interview with Sudan Radio, RVI Fellow Alfred Sebit Lokuji of the University of Juba makes a suggestion for the resolution of the border disputes between Sudan and South Sudan: consult the people who live there.
"One way to come out of deadlock is that one of the regimes, either the government of South Sudan or the government in Khartoum should change its mind. If it doesn't, it will continue to be a deadlock… they should understand that they are not working for now. They are working for future generations in both Sudans… My view is that, if we left it to the people on the border, we would get answers very quickly…There is no way that the two countries can just fight over who owns what part at the same time preventing movements of people and commerce."
