The outcome of this referendum will have important consequences and ramifications for Sudan, its neighbours, and the African continent.
In order to explore these questions we will present a newly published report:
Making co-operation attractive: post-referendum relations between Egypt and Sudan (Noref/PRIO 2011).
We will also bring forward some preliminary findings from a recently launched Fafo project on possible lessons for Sudan from the experiences of Eritrea and Somaliland.
