September 21, 2016

On September 20, 2016, Africa Center Director Kate Almquist Knopf testified before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the crisis in South Sudan. “The state of South Sudan has failed its people and that it is past time to abandon several myths regarding the health of South Sudan’s political culture, the capacity of its leaders, and the potential impact of technical interventions—from development assistance to peacekeeping—in a country that has for all intents and purposes had no meaningful historical experience with governance,” she said.
