New Sudan is a concept for restructuring the Sudanese state proposed by the Sudan People's Liberation Army/Movement. The original SPLA/M Manifesto outlined 'New Sudan' as a proposed united and secular Sudanese state.[1] The vision of 'New Sudan' was developed by Dr. John Garang, who advocated the 'New Sudan' as a democratic and pluralistic state.[2]

The 1994 National Convention of New Sudan (organized by SPLA/M) redefined 'New Sudan' as a system of governance for the regions under SPLA/M control.[1] After John Garang's death in 2005 and the independence of South Sudan in 2011, the New Sudan discourse became a less prominent feature in Sudanese politics.[2]
