This study explores the European Union’s (EU) political and development response to Sudan, which is a classic case of a complex political emergency. Sudan has experienced decades of protracted civil war and its fundamentalist government, accused of supporting international terrorism and human rights violations, has faced sanctions policies imposed by the international community. The EU policy response in Sudan has ranged from the suspension of development aid, its replacement by flows of humanitarian assistance, to the recent resumption of political dialogue with the Sudanese government.
