In a May 2014 interview, HSBA consultant Joshua Craze, author of several HSBA reports, describes recent developments in South Sudan's political and humanitarian crisis, which has continued to evolve since December 2013. In the first part of the interview, he describes the current crisis and the many competing stakeholders and claims; the second part of the interview, to follow, outlines possible scenarios for the country's future.
