Mapping Actors and Alliances Project in South Sudan (MAAPSS)

The Mapping Actors and Alliances Project in South Sudan (MAAPSS) provides up-to-date information on over 400 actors, and charts connections among political and military alliances and armed groups. MAAPSS is part of the broader Human Security Baseline Assessment (HSBA) for Sudan and South Sudan project.

The MAAPSS website contains hundreds of biographical profiles of individual people, armed groups, and political parties with an aim to promote awareness and enhance knowledge among policymakers, academics, humanitarian and development practitioners, and others committed to advancing peace and security in South Sudan.

The website is accessible upon registration here.

The MAAPSS Updates highlight new information uploaded on the MAAPSS website. Users who have registered on the MAAPSS website are notified by email when a new update is released.
