    Book Lecture on South Sudan: A Slow Liberation with Edward Thomas

    5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

    Edward Thomas has worked in Sudan and South Sudan for ten years as a teacher, human rights worker, researcher and political affairs officer. He is a fellow at the Rift Valley Institute and has written books and reports about Sudanese Islam, Sudan-South Sudan peace processes, and the borders between Sudan and South Sudan. In 2011, South Sudan became independent following a long war of liberation that gradually became marked by looting, raids, and massacres pitting ethnic communities against each other. South Sudan: A Slow Liberation is a remarkably comprehensive work in which Edward Thomas provides a multi-layered examination of what is happening in the country today. Writing from the perspective of South Sudan’s most mutinous hinterland, Jonglei state, the book explains how this area was at the heart of the country’s struggle. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and a broad range of sources, this is a sharply focused, fresh account of South Sudan’s long, unfinished fight for liberation
