Sudan and South Sudan confront a wide array of challenges. Ever since South Sudan became an independent country in 2011, each has experienced political upheaval, security threats, environmental pressures, and economic deprivation. With a combined population of over 50 million, their success as nation-states impacts not only the lives of their own people, but the broader region as well.
The Brookings Institution's Africa Security Initiative will host a panel of experts—including Ambassador Susan D. Page, a professor of practice at the Ford School— to discuss the future of the Sudans, and what the United States and its partners can do to support them.
- Moderator: Michael E. O'Hanlon, director of research at Foreign Policy
- Peter Biar Ajak, president of Revive South Sudan
- Ambassador Susan D. Page, professor of practice at the University of Michigan
- Nyagoah Tut Pur, researcher at Human Rights Watch's Africa Division
- Elizabeth Shackelford, senior fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs
- Joseph Tucker, senior expert at the United States Institute of Peace
