SØR-SUDAN OG NORGE – EN HISTORIE AV FEILGREP ELLER SUKSESSER?
19:00-20:30 Det norske engasjementet for Sudan og senere Sør-Sudan har dype historiske røtter. Det har resultert
i ambisiøse, omfattende bistandssamarbeid og politisk innsats.
Hvordan skal vi se på den norske innsatsen for sørlige Sudan gjennom historien? Hvilke feilgrep har vært
gjort? Hva kunne vært gjort annerledes for å unngå dagens prekære humanitære, økonomiske og
politiske krise? Er det rimelig å legge ansvaret for de ulike tilbakeslagene på norske aktører?

One comment on “How can South Sudan emerge from crisis?
  1. Grtulerer med dette tiltaket.
    Jeg kan dessverre ikke delta 2. november.
    Finnes det skriftlig materiale so kan studeres?
    Kanskje noe bør publisres som en bok?

    Noen som vil snakke om dette, kanskje vi bør ta et møte?
