Political Cafe: Power-Sharing Agreement in Sudan

23 November, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

- Free

On Saturday 23 November, FMS, Africa in Motion and ‘the Association of the Sudanese Community in The Netherlands’ would like to welcome you to their political cafe on the current situation in Sudan.

In April this year, 30-year ruling President Omar al-Bashir and his government were 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 al-Bashir, the demonstrators demanded a rapid transition to a civilian government. For weeks there were tense 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 a power-sharing agreement.

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

Come and join the conversation on Saturday, 23 November! Registration is mandatory.
