Abstract

Purpose: The reason for writing this paper is to analyse the most significant obstacles that are hindering the process of democratization in Sudan. I will also propose a set of policies that will be supportive of a democratic state. The policies will be aimed at addressing the aforementioned obstacles.
Methodology: The main methods used for the research were analyses of the policies of different democracy assistance organisations. The analyses will attempt to explain the extent to which they have or have not been successful.
Approach: Through summarizing the country’s political history whilst looking into the current political scenario a clear picture of Sudan's process to democracy can be made.
Originality: The novelty of the paper lies in the set of democracy assistance policies that have been proposed to address obstacles that stand in the way of a full-fledged democratic Sudan. The set of democracy assistance policies have been formed through the analysis of current policies.
Value: Countries in Africa which have been struggling to attain a democracy can escape from the obstacles Sudan has been facing in order to attain a democratic state by taking note of what is going wrong and can contemplate on how the situation can be improved. As a result of this paper, the newly contrived democracy assistance policies presented in the paper should be taken into consideration to make strides to achieve democracy in Sudan.
