Sudan: The Elusive Quest for Peace

IPI is pleased to launch its recent volume entitled Sudan: The Elusive Quest for Peace. The volume's launch is extremely well-timed as it coincides with the growing international involvement in Sudan. It provides an immensely valuable resource for policymakers working on the quest for sustainable peace in southern Sudan and Darfur.
The volume is eminently timely as it coincides with the growing international involvement in Sudan. It provides an immensely valuable resource for policymakers working on the quest for sustainable peace in southern Sudan and Darfur. The authors, Dr. Ruth Iyob and Dr. Gilbert Khadiagala, compellingly analyze the opportunities and limits of current conflict resolution efforts in Sudan. They do so by placing them in the historical context of the modern Sudanese polity, as well as considering the role of geography in the construction of modern identities. The volume also carries a message of hope, discerning among the different communities a strong yearning for peace and identifying multiple openings and building blocks for reconciliation.

Our distinguished panel includes Dr. Gilbert M. Khadiagala, Independent Consultant, formerly Associate Professor of African Studies at the School for Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Ruth Iyob, Associate Professor, University of Missouri, and Dr. Amir Idris, Assistant Professor of African Studies, Fordham University. Mr. Legwaila Joseph Legwaila, the former SRSG for the UN's mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) and currently the Secretary-General's Special Adviser for Africa will serve as the Chair.
