In July 2021, CSPS celebrated its tenth anniversary as it progresses from establishment stage to the second level of finding its way towards sustainability. There is no doubt that the search for knowledge and wisdom remains the first priority of humanity over the ages. Thus, think tanks endeavor to find solutions to the challenges and management of people’s expectations.

That is why during the past century, research, science and technology have proven to be the best tools for diagnosing and searching for solutions to human problems. Indeed, the potential to transform human environment has always stimulated human curiosity to learn more about options that may influence or predict what is deemed as the best or worst options.

Research think tanks are therefore important instruments through which the above options could be realized.  At ten, the Republic of South Sudan has the potential to contribute to human knowledge and adapt to the ever-changing world of science, technology and innovation through its emerging research institutions and think tanks.

The South Sudan Center for Strategic and Policy studies (CSPS) was established in July 2011 just a week after independence of the country to participate through research and capacity building in the development of the country and the region. The Board of Directors, has through the founding document, identified the gaps and the potential needs of the country, its neighborhood and global strategic trends and their impact on the development of the country. The center’s vision, mission, objectives, and goals are outlined as well as research programs.

Our research programs are geared towards developing democratic developmental state with focus on participatory governance system where human and natural resources are extracted and utilized to enhance the well-being of the population. Through our researchers and fellows, using their vast experiences in the research program areas we have identified, are at disposal of the center leadership to carry out research.

This website serves as a virtual medium of interaction with our partners and we hope you will find time to visit us anytime and we are ready for your queries.

Join us in our endeavor to make research the best tool for the betterment of the human complex life.

We are committed to our Motto  “Living the Future Today”.
