Glenn E. Robinson and Gerald F. Hyman, 2013/03. Democracy, human rights, and governance assessment of the Republic of South Sudan: Final report [Report] USAID. Accessed online.

Argues that authoritarianism and concentration of power in the hands of an elite have increased and will probably continue to do so as a result of GRSS's access to oil revenues while other sectors of the economy languish. There is a small window of opportunity for donor states to fight this trend leading up to the 2015 national elections, especially if a cut-off of oil revenues temporarily makes GRSS more dependent on aid donors. But USAID's main strategic goal for RSS has been stability. This may be optimal for realpolitik, but not for promotion of democracy, rights and good governance....
