USIP staff members are privileged to be able to travel and work in many places that are not on the beaten track. Along the way, we see amazing things, learn and share the experiences of different cultures and form lasting friendships. For the first time, understanding the power of images and hoping to inspire as well as inform, USIP shares photos from the field in an organized online exhibition.

The images below were all taken by USIP staff while working in Sudan. They have been divided into three categories to provide glimpses of three different ways in which we encountered the people and culture of the country.

Sudan Remains at a Stalemate After the Military’s Crackdown

It’s been over two months since Sudan’s longtime dictator, Omar al-Bashir, was overthrown by the country’s military following months of popular protests. On June 3, the Transitional Military Council (TMC)—which has been ruling since Bashir’s ouster—escalated its lethal crackdown on peaceful protesters in Khartoum and other cities. The protesters say that their demand is the same as before—a transition to civilian rule—but that they will not negotiate with the TMC unless it first meets certain conditions. What’s happening in Sudan? When will negotiations on the country’s transition resume? How can the international community help? USIP’s Elizabeth Murray discusses the latest on the situation in Sudan.
