Resolution and Reconciliation in South Sudan: Actors and Necessary Actions

3 June 2015 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Chatham House, London


Jok Madut Jok, Co-Founder, The Sudd Institute
Casie Copeland, South Sudan Analyst, International Crisis Group
Chair: Dame Rosalind Marsden, Associate Fellow, Africa Programme, Chatham House 



Following the 2013 outbreak of civil war in South Sudan, prospects for reconciliation and repairing of fractures between ethnic groups have been frustrated by the lack of progress at reaching a political deal in the Addis peace process and difficulties in initiating an inclusive dialogue that fosters trust at national and local levels. 

At this event, Jok Madut Jok, and Casie Copeland will examine the current situation in South Sudan and the limitations of the peace process, as well as prospects for reconciliation and steps that must be taken by key actors to move towards this.
