South Sudan becomes independent! How can International Society help?

2011-7-17 (Sun) 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

In 2005, one of the most deadly wars in the world, the civil war in the Sudan, finally came to an end, having claimed the lives of 2.5 million people. 

Now, on July 9th, South Sudan becomes an independent nation!

Following independence, what sort of challenges does South Sudan face? What is it that the international community can do to assist the people of South Sudan in building their nation?

Researchers who have done actual fieldwork in the southern Sudan as well as persons who have been there engaged in providing humanitarian aid will present lectures.
