Nairobi Forum: South Sudan – Peace beyond the ceasefire, Feb. 27 2015 @ Rift Valley Institute Office

Date and Time: Friday 27 February 2015 from 2pm to 4pm
Venue: Rift Valley Institute Office, Seminar Room
Location: Laikipia Road, Kileleshwa
Entrance is by prior registration only.

South Sudan: Peace Beyond the Ceasefire
After fifteen months of civil war in South Sudan, regional and international mediators continue to broker talks for a permanent ceasefire and power-sharing arrangement acceptable to both sides. But such a settlement will be just the beginning of a process towards lasting stability in a country where the potential for conflict is rooted in a host of difficult and deep-seated problems. These range from poverty and insecurity, weak national and local political structures, entrenched conflict economies, and inter-ethnic rivalries, to the competing interventions of neighbouring countries.

On 27 February 2015, the Rift Valley Institute Nairobi Forum will host a panel discussion to launch the new book South Sudan: A Slow Liberation, by Eddie Thomas. The event will examine the limitations of the anticipated settlement and discuss opportunities for regional governments and the international community to work together – and with the South Sudanese – for a more enduring peace.

Moderator: Don Bosco Malish, Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa

Panellists: Eddie Thomas, Author; Peter Biar Ajak, Center for Strategic Analyses and Research; Casie Copeland, International Crisis Group
