Juba Lectures

The 2013 RVI Juba Lecture series, held in collaboration with the Centre for Peace and Development Studies at the University of Juba, were held on 6-8 March 2013 at the university’s New Hall, addressing the theme ‘Building the Constitution in South Sudan’. The three keynote speakers were Professor Akolda Tier, Chair of the South Sudan Constitutional Review Commission, Jacob Akol, Director of the Gurtong Trust; and David Deng, Research Director at the South Sudan Law Society. The lecture series, widely publicized on local and national radio networks, attracted a diverse range of South Sudanese students, activists, political leaders and members of the international community. Podcasts of highlights from the three evenings are available. An edited transcript of the lecture series, including occasionally critical comments from the audience, will be published in early April.
