Constitution Making As Consensus-building on State Authority and Credibility

Location: Home & Away; 10:00 a.m-12:30 p.m
Organizer: The Sudd Institute
The Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan mandates the establishment of Federalism in South Sudan. The Agreement however failed to detail clearly how such federal system would look like and how it would work. The details will be addressed through the constitutional making process. To this end, the parties to the Agreement agreed to establish the Ministry of Federal Affairs to prepare the way.
As part of its strategy to support national dialogue on foundational issues of governance and development, the Sudd Institute is sponsoring a public lecture to discuss constitution-making process within the context of a federal system. This is critical because such public discourses intent on exposing varying opinions on public matters so as to build consensus and unity around national issues.
