Police and Law Enforcement in South Sudan
Date: 28 September 2013
Location: Dembesh Hotel (Opposite Juba Football Studium)
Organizer: The Sudd Institute
After waging a dignified war for liberty against various Khartoum based regimes for over half a century, South Sudanese finally established an independent state of their own, the Republic of South Sudan on July 9, 2011. Born out of brutal and arduous intermittent civil wars, the new country is confronted by a myriad of transitional challenges in terms of addressing its egregious past as well as forging a new course forward.
To undertake the daunting tasks of nation building and state formation, the world’s youngest nation has embarked on police service and law enforcement reforms, a process that is seen as vitally needed for building a coherent national identity. In an attempt to encourage public dialogue on the imperative of building an open, just and inclusive society, the Sudd Institute is sponsoring a public event by Dr. Jok madut Jok. The presentation closely examines how the security service and law enforcement reform process provides an opportunity for South Sudan to manage its diversity through building robust, inclusive institutions necessary to ensuring peace and stability.
