Simmering political and ethnic rivalries in South Sudan have erupted in open conflict. Over a thousand people have been killed, and many hundreds of thousands more have been displaced, seeking refuge in Uganda, Sudan or UN camps in South Sudan. Peace talks between the rebels and government in Addis Ababa have stalled.

Does this mean that South Sudan has failed? Can the talks produce a truce and meaningful discussion of the way ahead? How can the international community play a more constructive role?

Experts on the ground discuss the way forward in this Ground Truth Briefing.
