Darfur and Somalia - How to Solve the Crisis in Horn of Africa?
Mr Haavisto will offer his insights into the conflicts in Somalia and Darfur and seek to identify some potential areas for progress.
In January the Finnish Foreign Minister appointed Mr Haavisto as Special Envoy for African Crises, with special emphasis on the conflicts in Somalia and Sudan. During recent years Mr Haavisto has been working on the Darfur Peace Process. He was the first EU Special Representative for Sudan (2005-2007).
