CEDEJ Khartoum is pleased to announce the following publication (in Italian):
La contrapposizione tra apparati militari e movimenti islamisti è uno dei temi ricorrenti della storia contemporanea del mondo arabo. Il Sudan ha costituito l’unica eccezione a questa consolidata rivalità, grazie alla spregiudicatezza del carismatico Hasan al-Turabi, architetto del colpo di Stato che nel 1989 ha dato vita a un’insolita coalizione tra militari e islamisti. Il regime sudanese, tuttavia, non è riuscito a rappresentare un’“alternativa islamica” rispetto al modello autoritario dominante nel mondo arabo, ma ne ha assunto i caratteri violenti e alienanti. Esacerbando le fratture identitarie, esso si è spinto fino a compromettere l’unità del paese, rotta dalla secessione del Sud nel 2011. Ricostruendo una storia poco nota, il volume offre un punto di vista originale su quell’intreccio tra islamismo, conflitti armati e aspirazioni democratiche che costituisce la cifra della politica araba attuale.
Monthly Seminar at CEDEJ Khartoum

CEDEJ Khartoum is very pleased to welcome
Azza Mustafa Mohammed Ahmed, University of Khartoum
Who will present her PhD research on
Democracy and Political Parties in the Arab World. Case Study: Sudan and Lebanon
On this occasion, we will have the pleasure of receiving Pascal Boniface – the Director of the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS, Paris).
The present research examines democracy in the Arab World with an emphasis on comparing democracies in both of Sudan and Lebanon. It analyses the variance and similarity between the two cases; and identifies the political, social and cultural reasons and factors that led to the hindering of establishing democracy in Sudan in contrast to its relative success in Lebanon. The research examines the role of political parties and their discourses are compatible with their social and political objectives.

CEDEJ Khartoum is pleased to announce that the African Studies Association awarded the 2016 Bethwell A. Ogot Prize to Elena Vezzadini’s book « Lost Nationalism Revolution, Memory and Anti-colonial Resistance in Sudan » (James Currey Press, 2015) for the best book on East African Studies.
As the jury of the African Studies Association wrote:
« Lost Nationalism offers a history of a formative yet largely forgotten event, Sudan’s 1924 Revolution, in which insurgents from the ‘White Flag League’ attempted to overthrown the British colonial state in the name of unity with Egypt. Vezzadini connects this event to a host of regional and global developments, forcing us to rethink the role and utility of identifying ‘revolutions’ in African History. The core argument – that nationalism in 1924 Sudan should be understood not as an external dislocation but rather as the result of deliberate internal social movements – not only challenges and revises existing Sudanese historiography, but also asks us to re-interrogate more broadly the relationship between revolution and nationalism during the twentieth century. This also reopens a rather old-fashioned topic, nationalism, to a very productive regional and chronological reframing, around issues of race, class, status, communicative action and ‘knowledge panics’, with inspirational effect. With a stunning depth and breadth of research, Vezzadini has produced a kind of ‘total’ event history, the foundation of which is a sustained socio-economic analysis of those who joined the revolution, to produce an important alternative account of an event deliberately orphaned by both embarrassed British officials and subsequent Sudanese nationalists. »
