Contexto/Resumen

After decades of conflicts, South Sudan is ready to share its creative expressions with the world. While humanitarian responses are still ongoing, the government is looking to the cultural and creative industries (CCIs) as a motor of sustainable development, reconciliation and nation building. It is committed to creating legal frameworks for CCIs, beginning with the first-ever copyright policy, aimed at protecting and promoting artistic works of South Sudanese artists and creators.

This project supports South Sudan’s nation building efforts as well as capacity building of its national authorities through ensuring that the copyright policy is created in a participatory manner.

As a young nation with limited legal frameworks to guide the production of cultural goods and services, the project responds to the following needs and challenges identified by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports:

Challenges

  • Lack of legal frameworks governing the country’s CCIs
  • Duplication and reproduction of creative works without due acknowledgment to ownership

​​​​​​​Needs

  • Capacity development of national authorities and stakeholders to establish a viable cultural governance system
