The Justice and Security Research Programme is delighted to welcome five of the authors of the recently published book The Borderlands of South Sudan: Authority and Identity in Contemporary and Historical Perspective to debate a range of issues raised by South Sudan’s contested border negotiations and border management. The authors take an anthropological and historically informed perspective to examine the realities of border governance, which in both past and present has been conducted through a range of authorities working in parallel or in competition.
This event is free and open to all.
