Abstract: Although armed violence in southern Sudan has diminished since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), civilians are still exposed to comparatively high levels of insecurity. National and local authorities continue to insist on forcible disarmament as a strategy to stabilise the situation. Drawing on the findings of three victimisation surveys, this paper considers the prospects for future disarmament in a particularly volatile region – Eastern Equatoria and northern Kenya. It reviews challenges encountered in the course of undertaking household surveys in the region and the role of arms as a ‘protective factor’ in enhancing community security.
