CSRT, 2013/07/19. The Civil Society Resource Team on the Constitution Review Process upon Completion of the Citizens’ Dialogues on the Constitution in all ten states of South Sudan [Publicity document] Civil Society Resource Team on the Constitutional Review Process. Accessed online.

This press release outlines the schedule of state-level civil society consultations undertaken by the CSRT and summarizes the main views expressed. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the views are broadly in line with international conventions on human, civil and political rights. Most distinctively, the reported views call for reduction in presidential powers and more devolution of powers and resources to the states. While one could question the representativeness of the consultation process, this document helps clarify a progressive agenda on the constitution.
