Sudan: What's Happening, What Needs to Happen Now?

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location

Sudan needs to implement a North/South Comprehensive Peace Agreement even as it faces a major crisis in Darfur, where the UN is deploying its forces only with difficulty. In May, the contested oil-producing area Abyei suffered a confrontation between the Sudan Armed Forces and the Sudan People's Liberation Army that has left tens of thousands displaced and homeless, placed in doubt implementation of Sudan's Comprehensive Peace Agreement and threatened a return to civil war. A subsequent agreement reached earlier this month may provide a way forward, including a new arbitration procedure, security measures and establishment of an administration in the Abyei area. Questions linger about what happened in Abyei, what is happening in Darfur and what needs to happen now to reestablish peace and stability and prevent recurrence of violence.
