On 31 August, Sudan signed a peace deal with the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), a coalition of rebel groups from Darfur and the southern states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile. The agreement covers issues like security, land ownership, power sharing and transitional justice, and opens for the integration of rebel fighters into Sudan’s national army. The agreement puts an end to 17 years of devastating conflict in which more than 300 000 people have been killed and hundreds of thousands more have been forced to flee their homes. Can this agreement put a stop to the suffering of the people in Darfur? Is the prospect of rebel fighters integrating into the national army realistic? Is there lasting peace on the horizon?
Join us for this webinar where Gunnar M. Sørbø (emeritus at CMI) and Munzoul Assal (professor at the University of Khartoum) discuss the future of the Sudanese revolution. The conversation is moderated by Liv Tønnessen (research director at CMI).
