As we witness the birth of the world's newest nation, South Sudan, many security challenges lie ahead in the construction of the state. One fundamental internal challenge is building unity, cohesion and integration on an individual and national level among the diverse Southern communities. Sustainable unity towards building a Southern identity will only be recognised in an environment of mutual trust. In order to do so, civilian disarmament is a prerequisite. This calls for a carefully organised, integrated and non-violent approach that would effectively sensitise and incentivise disarmament and arms control among civilians.
