Understanding the Addis Ababa Cooperation Agreements

Date: 17 November 2012

Location: Home and Away

Organizer: The Sudd Institute


After months of tension between South Sudan and Sudan over unresolved issues concerning the separation of the two states, in September South Sudan and Sudan signed the Addis Ababa Cooperation Agreements. These agreements are seen as providing an opportunity for the two countries to turn a new page on their acrimonious past and embrace a constructive future. But in the wake of its signing, skepticism and controversy have surfaced about whether the arrangements outlined in the agreement will actually solve the problems between the two nations.


Please join the Sudd Institute for a public discussion with our able panel to better understand the opportunities and challenges these agreements present. Among the questions the panelists will try to address include the gains and losses of the oil agreement for South Sudan and the real meaning of the “mile 14” zone.
