Seeking Serenity in Sudan

Ambassador Ibrahim Gambari discusses how peacemakers deal with the conflict in Darfur at the Blain Sloan Lecture on International Law.

The Blaine Sloan Lecture on International Law honors former Professor Emeritus Blaine Sloan for his significant contribution to private and public international law, including developing the international law studies program at Pace. Professor Sloan’s UN service involved him in several organizations’ work on Vietnam, relief for Palestinian refugees, and peacekeeping in the Middle East.

This year’s Sloan Lecture, titled “Making Peace in Darfur (Sudan): Stubborn Reality and the Audacity of Hope,” focuses on international law as it pertains to the Darfur conflict–a civil war that has resulted in thousands dead, displaced, and starving.

The lecture will be given by Professor Ibrahim Gambari, the Joint Special Representative of the African Union-United Nations Mission in Darfur. His diplomatic work includes serving as an Ambassador under the Secretary General on the Iraq Compact as well as many other prestigious positions.

Sure to be a fascinating speaker, come listen to Ambassador Gambari’s take on the Darfurian conflict and what can be expected in the future for the Sudan.
