The state of Southern Kordofan was the site of some of the deadliest fighting between north and south Sudan during the 22-year war which ended in 2005 with the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA). The state lies at the (as yet undefined) border between north and south Sudan, and it is next to South Darfur. Under the CPA, Southern Kordofan lies in north Sudan, but it has a substantial population of Nuba people who identify with south Sudan. Since the CPA was signed, hundreds of thousands of people who fled during the north-south war have returned home to conditions of extreme poverty in Southern Kordofan. People interviewed by Refugees International expressed fears about the risks of renewed violence in the state and their strong desire to avoid being displaced again.
