New from HSBA: South Sudan Actors and Alliances Map

For over a decade, the Small Arms Survey’s Human Security Baseline Assessment for Sudan and South Sudan (HSBA) has specialized in providing timely expert knowledge on unfolding security and conflict dynamics in Sudan and South Sudan. In a practical application of that knowledge, a new interactive platform that provides biographical profiles of political and military actors, political parties, and armed groups in South Sudan is now live and available for registration.

The Mapping Actors and Alliances Project in South Sudan (MAAPSS) provides current information on over 400 actors, and charts connections among political and military alliances and armed groups.

Users can gain access to MAAPSS by registering at the link below. Such registration will also entail being added to our e-mail list to receive Updates highlighting new information and evolving dynamics within specific political or military actor-networks in South Sudan. You can opt out of this list and unsubscribe from it at any time by e-mailing ‘stop’ in the subject line to

MAAPSS Update 1—The new South Sudanese Cabinet: Ministerial appointments in the Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity—SPLM, SPLA-IO, and SSOA

The first MAAPSS Update features the newly formed cabinet of the Transitional Government of National Unity. With the announcement of the new South Sudanese cabinet on 12 March 2020, a raft of new faces entered the government, some of them old hands from the CPA-period, while others are relatively inexperienced. The MAAPSS Update provides an overview of the newly appointed cabinet members with built-in links for each actor’s profile within the MAAPSS website.

Upcoming Actors Updates will include:

  • a look at the new Vice-Presidents and the politics of the Office of the Presidency;
  • an overview of the governor appointments in each of South Sudan’s ten states; and
  • a who’s-who guide to the politics of the new Unity state and Ruweng Administrative Area.
  • Updates will also look at political and security actors in Eastern Equatoria, Northern and Western Bahr el Ghazal, among others.

Feedback on the MAAPSS site is welcome. If you have questions or comments, or have questions about individual or group actors in South Sudan for which the map may provide an answer, please email maapss(at)smallarmssurvey(dot)org.
