How and the place did returning Nuer refugees make their 'homes' in southern Sudan? How have been gender family members and identification redefined due to struggle, displacement and go back to post-war groups? and the way have been these displaced in a position to recreate a feeling of domestic, neighborhood and nation?
throughout the civil wars in southern Sudan (1983-2005) a number of the displaced Sudanese, together with many Nuer, have been in refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia. within the aftermath of the excellent Peace contract, they repatriated to southern Sudan. confronted with discovering long-lost kin and native expectancies of 'proper behaviour', they generally felt displaced again.
This booklet follows the lives of a gaggle of Nuer within the higher UpperNile sector. The narratives of these displaced and those that stayed in the back of show the complexity of social switch, particularly, the an important but quite unconsidered transformation of gender andgenerational relatives, and the way this has impacted on kingdom formation in what's now South Sudan.
