My Mother Will Not Come to Juba


In South Sudan delays in the making of the national constitution have led to public concern. My Mother Will Not Come to Juba: South Sudanese debate the constitution is the record of three evenings of public lectures at the University of Juba. Speakers at the event examined the reasons for the delay, the issues at stake in the drafting of the legislation and the question of public participation in the constitution-making process. A dozen South Sudanese intellectuals, including the Chair of the Constitutional Review Commission, discussed these topics with an audience of students, activists, political leaders and members of the international community.
