Welcome to the Nile Institute for Peace and Development - NIPD
The Nile Institute for Peace and Development is an independent research organization, dedicated to the conduct of quality research, training, advocacy, and facilitation of dialogue within and between the various communities in South Sudan. The Nile Institute for Peace and Development was established on April 3, 2013, as a response to the need for peace and development throughout South Sudan and the Diaspora. The Institute seeks to address important national and regional issues affecting South Sudan and its larger societies by shaping policies related to national governance, improving analytical capacities, formulating original problems and working towards durable solutions. We believe that sustainable peace can be achieved through development and well-informed citizenry. We plan to do this by educating and empowering South Sudanese communities and policy makers in South Sudan and the Diaspora to play a positive role in promoting peace and development, which will in turn foster cooperation and understanding among various ethnic communities across South Sudan and the world.
On January 9th, 2005, the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) brought an end to the brutal civil war that has engulfed Sudan since before its independence in 1956. The CPA established the semi-autonomous Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS), in the southern part of the Republic of Sudan. This was effectively transformed into the Government of the Republic of South Sudan on July 9th, 2011. With the celebration of independence slowly coming to an end, the South Sudanese citizens are demanding the fulfillment of a long-awaited dream: freedom from oppression and domination, justice and equality, democracy and economic prosperity, peace and tranquility. The Nile Institute for Peace and Development was established on April 3, 2013, as a response to the need for peace and development throughout South Sudan and the Diaspora. The Nile Institute is the initiative of South Sudanese, friends of South Sudan, and those in the Diaspora, in collaboration with those in South Sudan to find durable solutions to the problems affecting various communities in the country.
The vision of the Nile Institute for Peace and Development is to educate and inform individuals and communities about peace development and peace sustainability.
The mission of the Nile Institute for Peace and Development is to develop a strong network of individuals and communities empowered to focus on peace and peace development
