Making and Breaking Peace in Sudan and South Sudan

This chapter explores China’s engagement with the politics of peace in Sudan during the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) Interim Period between 2005 and 2011. Oil had been a key factor in the negotiation of the CPA itself and, after the agreement was signed, China’s engagement with Sudan was dominated by Darfur. The Chinese government and oil companies became more engaged with the CPA only in its later stages, seeking to reconcile self-interest, established relations with the National Congress party (NCP) and new relations with the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM). The CPA Interim Period covered a period of policy engagement where China, outside its role in UN peacekeeping, went from a comparative lack of direct engagement with questions of peace to a more engaged role. In this, two themes concerning China’s engagement stand out: a combination of principled critique and experimental policy practice, and efforts to capitalize on China’s primarily economic comparative advantage.
