June 28, 2017(Nyamilepedia)–  In a new U.S. News & World Report op-ed published yesterday, Reverse Course in South Sudan, Enough’s Founding Director John Prendergast argues for a completely revamped approach to peace in South Sudan.

He writes: “The international actors engaged in South Sudan diplomacy should literally start doing the opposite of nearly everything they are doing now…Time to wreck and rebuild, aiming for a new approach that learns valuable lessons from the crushing failures of the past decade and refocuses on the most important pathways to a peaceful future for South Sudan”
