Next Steps on Sudan: Has the Comprehensive Peace Agreement Paved the Way to Peace?
CSIS and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs hosted this special event of the U.S.-Swiss Dialogue Series. Through two panel discussions, speakers examined the role of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) and the upcoming January 2011 referendum. This seminar brought together senior officials who participated in the drafting of the CPA as well as UN and regional officials to examine the prospects for the upcoming referendum and to assess the chances of reaching an agreement on issues related to border demarcation, oil resources, and revenue-sharing.
Lieutenant General Lazaro K. Sumbeiywo, former Kenyan Special Envoy and Lead Mediator of the Sudanese Peace Process, provided the keynote address.
