This Case Study is part of The Global State of Democracy 2023 Report

The story of Sudan’s revolution and the popular movement that brought it about is complex, and its successes and failures offer valuable insights into the promise and limitations of popular mobilization as a form of countervailing institution.

Sudan’s revolution has become a source of inspiration for pro-democracy activists around the world and a source from which to learn lessons from.
