33rd Annual Sudan Studies Association Conference
Sudan and South Sudan: Boundaries, Borders and the Challenges of Nationhood

Two years years after independence and eight years after signing a Comprehensive Peace Agreement, South Sudan has plunged back into war with devastating consequences for the civilian population. What started as a fight between major power brokers in the Government of South Sudan has increasingly been transformed into inter-ethnic fighting on the ground leading to massive movements of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees to neighboring Uganda and Kenya. It has also resulted in many thousands of casualties. The 33rd Sudan Studies Association meetings will be held at USF, May 23rd to 25th, bringing academics, policy makers, politicians together with the goal of addressing these issues. If you are interested in what is happening in Sudan and South Sudan, more details of the program can be found here:  http://www.sudanstudies2014.org/registration-program/

All members of the campus community welcome!
