The 1999 Wunlit Peace and Reconciliation Conference is the best-known and most comprehensively documented of the local peace conferences held in South Sudan during the second civil war. The conference took place in Wunlit, a village in Bahr el Ghazal near the border between the Dinka of the Lakes region, and the Nuer of Western Upper Nile. The reconciliation between these communities that was negotiated at Wunlit after eight years of internecine strife marked a change in the dynamics of the conflict. Although the process had many limitations, it was a watershed in the war in South Sudan. This document is the detailed resolutions agreed at the conference. The document was found in the Sudan Open Archive.
