EBO Background Paper No 4 – All-inclusiveness in an ethnic context

After what had been recognised as successful talks in July that brought the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) closer to fruition only three points remained to be addressed before a binding agreement could be signed. Perhaps crucially the most important for all concerned parties were which groups are to be included in the signing of the NCA. This has become a particularly difficult point to address as the Government and the armed ethnic group leaders have differing views as to the validity of those groups that can be a part of the process at the initial ceasefire stage.

There are six groups that are a major concern during these talks, each groups has a different background, a different goal, and different claims as to why they deserve to participate in what is ostensibly an agreement not to militarily engage the government’s armed forces. [Download]
