Comments:
Organisational entity The Delegation to Sudan consists of staff members from European and Sudanese nationalities. The task of the staff is to assure the best representation of the European Union towards the Republic of The Sudan. The Delegation to Sudan is composed of the Head of Delegation Office, the Political, Press and Information section, the Cooperation section, the Finance, Contracts and Audit section, and the Administration section. Since 25 October 2021 a military regime is in power in Sudan.

Opposition organizes demonstrations frequently (a few times a week). This might impact the working environment, resulting in being obliged to work from home in certain instances. The safety and security of Delegation staff is taken good care of: a Security Officer is based in Sudan, following the situation, acting upon it by disseminating relevant information, and instructing Delegation staff about what to do and what not.
