Roundtable - Sudan’s Elections & the Economy:  Oil & Water, Austerity & War

Roundtable - Sudan’s Elections & the Economy: Oil & Water, Austerity & War

About the show

As Sudan prepares for elections on April 13 – 15th, this roundtable explored how the country’s economy is faring in the context of political challenges faced by the ruling National Congress Party over the last 5 years. This included an assessment of the diminished, but influential, oil industry (Sudan receives significant transit fees from South Sudan for crude export ), regional relations with Egypt and Ethiopia over the management of the Nile and Sudan’s bilateral relations with major international powers including the United States and China.

The discussion considered the current stability of the military-Islamist regime of Omar el-Beshir living with the challenges of post-secession austerity, the wars in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile, and the National Dialogue with opposition groups.

Speakers: Magdi el Gizouli, Academic and fellow of the Rift Valley Institute; Laura Bromwich, Former economic adviser to Thabo Mbeki's Sudan/South Sudan mediation panel
