Lecture on the Crisis in the Central African Republic
On Monday, 7th of April, the Department for Stabilization and Humanitarian Aid (DSH) and the Sub-Saharan Africa Department (DAF) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will organize a lunch lecture on the crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR).
In recent months, violence in the CAR has reached a new and unprecedented level. The armed groups are extremely violent and the number of victims among the civilian population is growing. The conflict is complex and runs along religious and ethnic lines. The humanitarian situation is becoming more acute, and nearly 850,000 people are displaced.
Thierry Vircoulon, project director of the Central-African Department of the International Crisis Group (ICG), will discuss the recent developments in the CAR and elaborate upon the ethnic and religious dimensions, the role of the government and the way forward.
You are free to forward this invitation to anyone who may be interested. Please, since seats are limited, kindly note that registration is required. To enter the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, please bring a valid ID.
