PRIO (2014) The role of the White Army in the current conflict in South Sudan

Based on extensive field research in the Greater Upper Nile and Gambella regions,1 this report focuses on Nuer civilians who are fighting on the side of the SPLM/A-in-Opposition in the current civil war, popularly known as the White Army. Although it features in a few reports, there are many misconceptions about the White Army; its origins, leadership structure, composition, and role in society are poorly understood.
