Omer Shurkian

Omer Shurkian is a Sudanese who has been working relentlessly through his participation in a number of conferences within the UK and overseas to draw public attention to what is, for most outsiders, a largely unpublicised issue in world politics. He has been involved in anti-government campaigns for its horrific record on human rights violations against its opponents. With fellow Nuba people in Britain, they created and ran the UK-based Nuba Mountains Solidarity Abroad (NMSA) in the early 1990s. He served as the secretary general of NMSA and later its chairman. He was also the editor-in-chief of NAFIR, the newsletter of the Nuba people in Sudan.

He is the author of War in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan (1983–2011): The Root Causes and Peace Settlement.
