Sudan is Africa’s third largest country, bordering Egypt, Chad, Libya, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Eritrea and the breakaway State of South Sudan. Purporting to be a democratic republic, Sudan is in fact a highly authoritarian State ruled by Omar al-Bashir, where effective political opposition is heavily restricted. Human rights abuses are widespread, particularly in areas affected by the country’s successive internal conflicts. In addition, the rights of women and girls are also poorly implemented, with high rates of female genital mutilation and child marriage.
