Posted March 30, 2005; 04:25 p.m.
A State Department official will speak on "The Sudan Comprehensive Peace Agreement: A Framework for Eventual Peace and Reconciliation for All Sudanese" at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 7, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Charles Snyder, special representative for Darfur at the U.S. State Department, is expected to discuss prospects for peace, including the recent U.N. Security Council resolution establishing a 10,000-member peacekeeping force. The force is charged with reinforcing a peace agreement to end a 21-year civil war in the south of the country and lending assistance in the conflicted Darfur region in the west, where thousands of people have died in a separate conflict.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the Global Issues Forum and the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
