NYU Wagner Presents 'Eyes on Sudan' -- Feb. 16

February 15, 2011

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

This discussion, from 12:30 p.m.-to-1:45 p.m., will include Piotr Gulczyński, president of the Lech Walesa Institute; Jimmy Mulla, president of Voices For Sudan; Laura Heaton, writer-editor for the Enough Project; and David Phillips (moderator), director of the Institute for the Study of Human Rights Darfur Initiative at Columbia University.

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.

The event will also feature an exhibition of exclusive photographs and reportage from the Lech Walesa Institute’s electoral observers in southern Sudan.
