I blog here my thoughts on contemporary developments in Sudan and South Sudan. I also tweet @alyverjee
All opinions are my own; courteous comments and critiques are welcome.
I lived in Sudan and South Sudan from 2005 to 2010, and returned in 2011 as the chief political analyst for the European Union observation mission for the South Sudan referendum.
From 2011-13, I primarily worked as a researcher in eastern Africa.
From May 2014 to September 2015, I was a senior advisor to the IGAD-led mediation for South Sudan, based in Addis Ababa.
In November 2015, I returned to Juba as deputy, and then acting, chief of staff of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC), and served in that position until late April 2016.
In January 2017, I was named a fellow of the Rift Valley Institute.
