On the occasion of the referendum 9th January 2011 concerning the
future international status of Southern Sudan: Fafo, Noref and PRIO
have the pleasure of inviting to a breakfast seminar at Fafo.

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.

Please registere by 7 January by following this link.
