This study offers a bird’s eye view of the status of women’s political participation in post-uprising Sudan. The report focuses on four states with the objective of looking at different forms of political participation outside of the central locus of political governance in Khartoum. The reason for this is to shed light on lesser explored sociopolitical contexts. The selected sites are: Central Darfur, Blue Nile, Kassala and River Nile.
The study is the result of qualitative-based research that targeted actors concerned with women’s political participation at the grassroots and elite levels. The main data collection tools were interviews and focus group discussions. Four focus groups (each with 7–10 participants) were conducted within each state (with the exception of River Nile state4 ) at different urban and rural sites.
