SSSUK's sister organisation in the U.S.A., the SSA is dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge about all aspects of life in Sudan and South Sudan. Founded in 1981, it seeks to promote research which is academically rigorous, historically informed and which addresses the dynamics that shape both nations and their relationships with neighbouring countries. Conferences are held annually in North America. In addition, international conferences have in recent years been convened in collaboration with SSSUK in Durham (2000), Washington DC (2003), Bergen (2006), Pretoria (2009) and Bonn (2012). The Association welcomes new members, partner collaborations and encourages emerging scholars to join.
