New Sudan' is a concept which aims to radically reform Sudan's governance system by addressing the national identity crisis that has been responsible for the wars, instability and failures in the country's past. It is largely associated with Dr John Garang de Mabior, who died in 2005. To some, the vision of 'new sudan' died with him. To others, it has ironically been rejuvenated, particularly in the country's North. But can it be realised, or will it remain an elusive dream?'
