Division and Conflict in South Sudan: Policy Priorities for the International Community

4 February 2014 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Chatham House, London


Dame Rosalind Marsden, UK Ambassador to Sudan (2007-2010); EU Special Representative for the Republic of Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan (2010-2013)



Conflict in South Sudan has claimed thousands of casualties and displaced half a million people since violence erupted in December 2013. A ceasefire has been signed in Addis Ababa, while peace talks aimed at finding a lasting political resolution continue.

Informed by her extensive experience of South Sudan, Dame Rosalind Marsden will discuss the political and humanitarian crisis facing the country. She will give her perspective on the future prospects for South Sudan, regionally brokered negotiations, relations with Sudan and policy priorities for the international community.

This event is part of a meeting series entitled Division and Conflict in South Sudan.
