Letter from Aweil: Rift Valley Institute


In August 2017, I returned to former Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, now divided into four new states, to conduct research for the Rift Valley Institute’s Customary Authorities Project. I worked with Joseph Diing Diing Majok, a dedicated and enthusiastic anthropology student from the University of Juba, and an Aweil-based research assistant, Paulino Dhieu Tem, across Lol, Aweil North and Aweil East States. I reflected on the situation in Aweil in a short letter to the RVI, which you can read here. A full report and briefing note from the research will follow later this year.
