Lessons Learned from the Southern Sudan Referendum Process

On April 29th, IPI hosted a lunchtime policy forum on "Lessons Learned from the Southern Sudan Referendum Process.” Professor Mohamed I. Khalil and Justice Chan Reec Madut, the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Southern Sudan Referendum Commission, respectively, made opening remarks on the lessons learned from the year-long process to enable the people of Southern Sudan to exercise their right to self-determination.

Professor Khalil has served the Republic of the Sudan as Minister of Justice, Speaker of the Constituent Assembly, and as the first Dean of Law at Khartoum University.

Justice Chan most recently served as the Deputy President of the Supreme Court of Southern Sudan and as Legal Adviser to the First Vice President of the Republic and President of the Government of Southern Sudan.

The event was held under the Chatham House rule of non-attribution. It was moderated by Dr. Edward C. Luck.
