On 9 January 2011, the oil rich Southern Sudan voted on a referendum to split from the North. With an overwhelming majority of 99% of people voting in favor of secession, South Sudan will become an independent and autonomous state on 9 July 2011.
This referendum is a result of a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed in 2005 which marked an end to the 20-year civil war between the North and the South. Nevertheless, violence and uncertainty still grips the country with nearly 200 civilians killed as recently as February 2011. Hence, as a new African state emerges among such tension and security challenges, it becomes essential for the international community to examine the situation in the region.
These issues will be examined at University of St. Gallen's roundtable "Human Security Challenges in Sudan" on Thursday, 10 March 2011. The round table is also intending to help prepare the students of HSG who will represent Sudan in the National Model United Nations 2011.
Date: Thursday, 10 March 2011
Time: 12:00 – 14:00 - Brown Bag Seminar
Location: University of St. Gallen, Dufourstr. 45, 9000 St. Gallen, Room 07-001 - Building 7 (Mensa)
