Sudan: Peace in the Balance, presentation at University of Notre Dame, October 5, 2010

In January 2011, southern Sudan will hold a referendum on independence from Sudan. Will this lead to peace or new violence and instability? The Sudanese Bishops have issued a message about the referendum (PDF File). Three representatives of the Catholic bishops of Sudan were in the United States for high-level meetings in Washington and spent two days at Notre Dame. Watch the streaming video to see the presentations, questions, and answers.
