Political Cafe: Power-sharing agreement in Sudan, what needs to be done?

13:30 - 16:30 | The Hague Humanity Hub
Inschrijving is geopend tot 24 november 2019

On Saturday 23 November, FMS, Africa in Motion and 'the Association of the Sudanese Community in The Netherlands' would like to welcome you to our political cafe on the current situation in Sudan. You can register at the bottom of the page!

In April this year, 30-year ruling President Omar al-Bashir and his government where replaced by the military after months of vast protests, which started over a tax on bread and fuel subsidies issued in December. After the military overthrew Bashir, the demonstrators demanded a rapid transition to a civilian government. For weeks there were tensed negotiations with the military, while mass demonstrations were held. After severe escalations in June 2019 in which more than a hundred civilians were killed, the two sides reached an power-sharing agreement.

What does this power-sharing agreement exactly entails? What are the political challenges of Sudan? And what is the way forward? This afternoon, together with experts, activists and an engaged audience, we will answer these questions and more, and reflect on what our role can be.
