Abstract

Tribal interactions between groups of Southern Kordofan and the Southern provinces of Bahr al Ghazal and Upper Nile are wide and old. The old coexistence habits that previously dominated a one country structure were torn down by a de facto status secession by the Southern region of Sudan. The South Kordofan represents a region where tribal groups live in. Now it represents a region of future candidate for war. The decision of secession of Southern Sudan for independence involved delayed drawing borders and arguments of conflicts on specific regions bordering the two parts of Sudan. In South Kordofan many tribes lived side by side. Currently, with the weakening and declination of the Central Government of Khartoum authority many calls are heard for new arrangement containing every tribe's border. The Arab Hawazma, Nuba mountains' and the Dinka Ngok are among those tribes where the expected conflict flare would ignite. Armed clashes resulted in population migration and displacements in addition to casualties from both sides. That resulted in disorder in the economic life and production modes of all the inhabitants.
