South Sudan is the world’s youngest nation and the home of 63 ethnic groups. Its land is imbued with enormous deposits of petroleum and other natural resources and, despite this, is one of the poorest countries in the world. South Sudan has a history of conflict and violence. Often tribalism adds to this scenario. Millions of war-weary South Sudanese pay the high price and consequences of an ongoing and deep political, economic and military crisis. How can this young African nation achieve lasting peace, stability and development? What role can the different actors play in this process? You are invited to attend a presentation on South Sudan and interact with the speakers.
