A nice little fable (probably true) about how young children get to see the government as intrinsically predatory.

Lengthy, careful and systematic (though inevitably not comprehensive) account of human rights practices, cagegorized by: (1) respect for the integrity of the person; (2) respect for civil liberties; (3) respect for political rights; (4) corruption and lack of transparency in government; (5) governmental attitude to human rights investigations; (6) discrimination, societal abuses and trafficking in persons; and (7) worker rights.

Reports that trafficking occurs both across South Sudan's international borders and internally. Internally it is associated with population displacements, rural-urban migration and inter-ethnic abductions. Many of the victims are women and children in prostitution or domestic service in the cities, and children put to work in other ways. GRSS made negligable efforts to prevent trafficking or protect victims except in the area of recruitment to the police and army. The report recommends adoption and implementation of a national action plan to combat human trafficking.
