"Peace in Southern Sudan: The Role of Civil Society"
Beth Rogers-Witte, USD '02, will speak to the role that civil society has played in maintaining the peace in Southern Sudan after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005. Specific examples will be given from a project implemented by the international nongovernmental organization, Mercy Corps, where Ms. Rogers-Witte formerly worked as a Deputy Program Manager, based in Southern Sudan. Lessons learned from those programs can also transfer to peacemaking efforts in Darfur. This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required, and attendees are free to bring a lunch. Beverages will be provided.
