Sudan: From the Diplomatic Frontline in Search of Peace

Recorded on December 18, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

From the urgent need to bring relief to the suffering people of Darfur to implementation of the agreement which ended Africa's longest civil war, the United States has sought to mobilize the international community to act.  Those around the world who are committed to human rights and to peace in the region must act swiftly to make a difference on the ground for the people of Sudan, especially in Darfur.  The next few months are critical to support the progress that's been made thus far on the ground. 

Please join us as Ambassador Richard S. Williamson, the President's Special Envoy to Sudan, discusses the latest developments in Sudan and America's efforts to increase prospects for peace, stability and security in the region.  Ambassador Williamson, a practicing partner in the law office of Winston and Strawn, previously has served as Ambassador to the United Nations for Special Political Affairs, Ambassador to the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations, and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs in the White House.
