Sudan's Complex Dynamics: Regional and International Context and Prospects for the Political Process
Ahmed Hussain Adam, Visiting Fellow, Institute for African Development, Cornell University
Chair: Dame Rosalind Marsden, Associate Fellow, Africa Programme, Chatham House
Following the failure of the recent peace talks in Addis Ababa, efforts towards a political transition have been stalled in Sudan. Meanwhile, there have been new developments in regional and international dynamics. A marked warming in Sudan’s relations with Gulf countries has followed Sudan’s contribution of troops to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, yet Sudan’s relations with Egypt have seen recent strains. The European Union has been working with Sudan under the Khartoum Process to curb illegal migration from the Horn of Africa to Europe, agreeing to fund Sudanese police training to tackle human trafficking.
Ahmed Hussain Adam will discuss the current situation in Sudan and attempts to move forward with the political process amidst the shifting regional and international context.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
