E1 : How it All Started

In the first episode of the Lundin War Crimes Trial podcast, we meet two experts who take us back to the origins of the case. What was the connection between oil and the war in Sudan? How did Lundin’s search for oil affect the people who lived in its concession area? And how did the world react when oil added a new dimension to Sudan’s civil war?


  • Dr Leben Moro, Director at the University of Juba and teaching at its Center for Peace and Development Studies, and
  • Marina Peter, a founder of the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan, that stood behind the Unpaid Debt report.


  • Halima Athumani
