My research questions are based on answering what has been done on the three social levels in Sudan after 2005. The conclusion of the study is that there are conditions for freedom of religion in Sudan after the peace agreement. I also claim that the conditions are better now compared to the contiguous period before the CPA. Finally, I remark that there exists religious discrimination in the whole Sudanese society that has to be dealt with on the three different levels. (Less)
