A lunchtime panel discussion at NYU Wagner on Wednesday, February 16 will examine the recent referendum in Sudan.

The panelists will explore the implications of the referendum's results on human rights, development and humanitarian aid, as well as the major challenges that the country will face in the next six months in a region where protests in Egypt and Tunisia have changed the political atmosphere.
The event will take place in The Puck Building, 2nd Floor, 295 Lafayette Street (at Houston), New York, N.Y. It is presented by the Lech Walesa Institute, the Human Rights Foundation, and the Wagner School.
