    In the beginning of the 1980's, drought in the Western Sudan and Civil war in the South precipitated massive migrations towards the capital city and have been instrumental in producing a kind of forced urbanization.

Marginalized and excluded from power, they had to overcome many obstacles before they could settle in Khartoum. The following working paper attempts to draw their social and economical constraints with a demographic perspective.
