The Future of Canada’s Engagement in Sudan

Published: November 19, 2009

The following note has been compiled by the North-South Institute on behalf of the Sudan Inter-Agency Reference Group (SIARG) to inform a consultation requested by the Government of Canada’s Sudan Task Force on the future of Canada’s engagement in Sudan. This short think piece provides a sampling of SIARG membership views on Canadian engagement and generates some forward-looking ideas for development, security, and diplomatic initiatives. It does not reflect a common position or consensus among SIARG members, but instead aims to offer a starting point for discussion. It is focussed on some of the directions the government of Canada could take in the coming years, but this focus does not mean to understate or obscure the important contributions that have been made and will continue to be made by Canadian civil society working in Sudan and with Sudanese partners.
