Sudan’s Spreading Conflict – roundtable with International Crisis Group
In a series of reports “Sudan’s Spreading Conflict”, the International Crisis Group looks at Sudan’s peripheral at wars. The first two reports draw attention to the very violent war that resumed in South Kordofan and Blue Nile in 2011.
The latest report “the limits of Darfur’s peace process”, focuses on the Darfur agreement, the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur.
This roundtable will discuss ongoing conflicts in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile, the peace process in Sudan in the context of decreasing international attention on Sudan’s internal crisis since the secession of South Sudan in 2011, and growing armed and unarmed opposition to the Sudanese government.
