Abstract

This paper critically analyses the experience of the Irish government in implementing bilateral aid to a conflict-prone country, Sudan, from the mid-1970s to the late 1990s. It illustrates the shifting patterns of Irish bilateral aid to Sudan from first-generation (modernisation) activities to second-and third-generation activities that focused on basic needs and civil society. The paper demonstrates that after a poor beginning, the Irish were successful in carrying out effective, poverty-focused development activities, despite ongoing conflict in many parts of the country. Finally, the paper reviews the possibilities for and difficulties inherent in new potential engagements in Sudan in the event of a successful peace agreement in the south of the country, particularly given the current military conflict and humanitarian crisis in western Sudan.
