Reference Mini-review
Jane Kani Edward, 2014/01/28. A Strategy for Achieving Gender Equality in South Sudan [Report] The Sudd Institute. Accessed online.

Useful overview of the special difficulties facing women and girls, and of current thinking about moving more toward gender equality in South Sudan.

AWEPA, 2013/12/02. Trainer’s manual on gender in local councils in the Republic of South Sudan [Book] Association of European Parliamentarians with Africa (AWEPA). Accessed online.

This 100-page manual is a collection of annotated checklists which could be useful beyond the exact purpose specified in the title. For instance, it could help people checking the gender-sensitivity of development programmes in many different countries. It is not very inspirational as regards the problem of making a mass of information and doctrine come to life educationally. There is also a Participants' Guide which presents much of the content in the same way, but leaves parts out, and adds space for taking notes.
