This chapter addresses the meaning and development of what is called the Margin. In the Sudan, the term is applied to a region of the country that continues to be marginalized from the main society. The marginalization of such regions developed as a result of practices, zoning, and policies that, at their most benign, have the potential to harm certain groups of people. Marginalization occurs also as a result of deliberately ignoring and/or denying some people the opportunity to fully participate in the society to which they belong. In efforts to define and focus the debate over the southern part of the country, a certain functional imperative arose. At the same time, the discourse of marginalization—and its proliferation of demands, rights, and entitlements—has expanded to other areas in the Western Sudan, the Nuba Mountains, and the Blue Nile, as well as to the eastern parts of the country. This represents only the visible forms of marginalization; invisible forms of marginalization include those experienced by women and the rural poor.
