Abyei Dispute May Threaten Sudan's Peace Agreement

Speaker: John Campbell, Senior Fellow for Africa Policy Studies, CFR
May 26, 2011

Escalating fighting in Sudan's disputed border region of Abyei "has the potential, the threat, of growing into something much larger that could in fact endanger the peace agreements between the North and the South," says John Campbell, Senior Fellow for Africa Policy Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Campbell argues that a possible solution may be for both sides to remove their troops from Abyei, and increase UN presence in the area.
