This article is a chapter in the book Realizing Property Rights, edited by Hernando de Soto and Francis Cheneval. It explores the role weak property rights play in exacerbating conflict in Sudan. Although most analysis of conflict in Africa posits ethnic, religious, or political disputes as the cause, this article explores the role that weak and ambiguous property rights play in exacerbating confrontation. Peaceful societies exist where property rights are strong and enforceable.
