Human Rights Violations in Sudan

More Info
Decades of civil war (fueled by the uneven distribution of resources and centralizing of power) and rule by authoritarian regimes have resulted in gross violation of the human and civil rights of Sudan's citizens. The north-south civil war has left 2 million dead and millions remain displaced, while deaths continue to mount in Darfur. The Sudanese government persists in its repression of opposition activists who are subjected to forced disappearances and torture, restriction of freedoms and oppression of women.
