The one-year anniversary of South Sudan's independence is fast approaching. South Sudan and Sudan have seemingly stepped back from the brink of all-out war, but they have yet to resolve many outstanding issues within the context of the ongoing North-South negotiation process. Meanwhile, conflict is deepening in a number of Sudan's regions, while the pro-democracy movement – led by youth, civil society organizations, and opposition political parties – is protesting Sudan's dictatorship. This violence and unrest poses significant implications for South Sudan and the region at large.
Join us for a discussion that will address these multiple and interconnected challenges and explore ways to build peace and security within and between the two Sudans.
The Enough Project will also debut a short video – shot in South Sudan – highlighting the reflections of South Sudanese and Sudanese on the occasion of South Sudan's first anniversary of independence.
