Please read: Important information for guests attending public events at USIP.


Since the middle of December the world’s newest country, South Sudan, has been gripped by violence. What started as a political dispute has escalated into fighting across significant portions of the country. A rebel movement controls important areas and more than a thousand people have been killed. Negotiations between the government and rebels have commenced in Ethiopia, but the fighting continues on the ground. The international community has responded rapidly, including by significantly expanding the size of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan, but questions remain about international leverage over the parties. Meanwhile, close to 200,000 South Sudanese have been displaced, with tens of thousands seeking shelter in U.N. bases.

Please join USIP and the Wilson Center for a discussion of the root causes of the crisis, strategies for ending the violence, and ideas for building a more stable South Sudan.


This event will feature the following speakers:

Ambassador Princeton Lyman
Senior Advisor, U.S. Institute of Peace & former U.S. Special Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan

Ambassador Alan Goulty
Wilson Center Global Fellow & former U.K. Special Envoy and Ambassador to Sudan

Jon Temin, Moderator
Director, Africa Program, U.S. Institute of Peace

Additional panelists to be added.
